the best thing to do for your 5 week old child is to give her only breast feeds not even a drop of water beyond that.. cause a newborns digestive system is programmed in a way to adapt to mothers milk, mothers milk also has gut maturation factors which will avoid the above mentioned problems in your child.. also it contains enzymes which the baby needs to digest the protein and sugar content of the milk. the milk also contains anti infective agents like antibodies
, antibacterials which prevent the harmful bacteria from colonizing the new born gut. these bacteria are responsible for excess gas/ wind production in the bowel.
the best thing is to only breast feed the child 8-10 times daily in interval of 2-2 1/2 hours, watch out for urine output.. normally it needs to pass minimum of 6 times daily.. with this all the problems will stop. In case before you do this baby develops abdominal distension with passing red/brown particle stools then kindly visit a pediatrician
as soon as possible.
