Smelly gas
An_253735 posted:
My 4 1/2 month old has really smelly gas. What could be the cause of it?
hupper124 responded:
My son, Phoenix, is almost 4 and a half months old and he is breastfed. He has always had revoltingly smelly farts. I mentioned it to our pediatrician at the 6 week check up and asked what caused it - thinking it must be something I was eating. He said that some babies have smelly farts and some don't. He said something about bacteria getting to the 'food' that remains undigested. Obviously the less frequently they poo then the more opportunity for the bacteria to create the smell. Once the gas builds up it has to be released so nothing to worry about. Not sure if this is right but it makes sense. Hope this helps!
