Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

First I would like to congratulate you on arrival of new family member.
Relax,there is nothing to worry.
I strongly recommend you to give EXCLUSIVE BREASTFEEDING till 6months of age.
Do not be anxious about gas passing;it is normal for babies.
I suggest you to give neopeptin drops 5 drops two times a day.
You should avoid gas forming food items in your diet.
But regarding feeding breast milk is boon for your baby which will protect him from infections ,will increase his immunity.

In case he continues to be irritable get him examined by pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query,in case you have any further question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your baby good health.

God bless
