I offer an alternative to meds: The Happi Tummi. It’s a belt filled with soothing herbs that you heat up then place on the baby’s belly. Both peds and moms seem to like it, me included.
My baby #2 was able to–ahem–pass gas with little ado, so I can’t say for sure whether the Happi Tummi did anything but warm him up on a cold night when I tried it out. But if he ever goes through even half of the agony his sister did, I’d whip this sucker out again without a second thought -Kristen
Congrats to Kim C. and Shelby A. winners of their own Happi Tummis.
