Maybe he was right
Anyway, about this experimentation. When James was 1 week old he was not gaining enough weight. We were instructed by our pediatrician to feed him every 2-3 hrs. To even wake him up and feed him (wake him up at least during the day). Well, we did this. By the next office visit he had gained 1 pound. We were very proud parents who felt we had done a good parenting job. Not being told differently we continued to make sure he was being feed every 2 hrs (during the day which just naturally went into the night feedings). 2 weeks later, now 1 month old, James weights 10 pounds. I just hope the Dr. understands that we are just trying to do the right thing and that we were not trying to create a little porker. So this is the reason for his gassiness, parents that were really eager to make sure our little one was eating enough. What we got was a little one that was eating too much was causing him to have gas. Paul akined it to eating Thanksgiving dinner several times a day. I would have gas too.
