When should you worry about baby's gas?

ANSWER

The good news is that most gas issues resolve themselves over time. However, if your baby’s irritability is severe and chronic, you should suspect something other than gas as the culprit. And if your child is not growing well, the gas may be an indication of a significant digestive problem. See your baby’s doctor to discuss any concerns you may have.
