Your little one might be telling you they’ve got tummy pains if they show one or more of these signs:
- Acts fussy or grumpy
- Doesn’t sleep or eat
- Cries more than usual
- Trouble being still (squirming or tensing up muscles)
- Makes faces that show pain (squeezing eyes shut, grimacing)
Stomach aches are common for kids. Luckily, they’re not usually caused by anything serious. They can be painful, though, so it’s good to have soothing strategies on hand.
Gas discomfort upsets almost every baby to some degree and it affects both breast-fed and bottle-fed babies. While gas pain is common and can afflict a child at any age, it is particularly bothersome in newborns and young infants between one and four months of age, as their immature guts are developing. Furthermore, some babies seem to suffer more than others due to inborn and environmental factors.
