Many moms report that eating some kinds of food trigger kabag in their babies, including:
- Spicy foods
However, please note that we need more studies to confirm the connection between infant gas and moms’ diet while they breastfeed. After all, many babies tolerate these foods just fine.
How to Help a Child with Kabag
Are you looking for a simple kabag remedy for your baby? You can consider the following tips:
Check their feeding position
The first practical tip is to check your baby’s feeding position.
Bottle feeding does not cause gas, but a wrong bottle position might make the baby swallow too much air.
To prevent kabag, tip the bottle higher so that the nipple is filled with milk. Additionally, check for clogged bottle nipples. If the milk doesn’t flow, then your baby is only sucking air. Finally, consider anti-colic feeding bottles; these bottles are designed to lessen the air in the tip.
Breastfeeding mommies also need to check their baby’s attachment and position. Keep the baby’s head higher than their tummy. This is so the air stays on top of the stomach while the milk sinks, making it easier for them to burp.
