    Default Stinky wind

    My 7 month DD has really really stinky gas. She has always been a windy baby but since introducing solids she is really noxious.
    Any thoughts on whether it's the solids, the dairy, just her?
    I've got a paed appointment this week so I'll ask him but wondered if any hubbers had any ideas.
    I was thinking to introduce a probiotic to see if it makes any difference.

    What solids have you been feeding? Dd6 has a few intolerances and some cause her to get horribly stinky gas. If you tell me what you have been feeding, I might be able to help

    Thanks @Gothel.
    She has the following:
    Spinach
    Broccoli
    Pea
    Sweet Potato
    Carrot
    Leek/onion/garlic
    Yoghurt
    Mandarin
    Pear
    Apple
    Apricot
    Avocado
    Wholemeal bread (butter and Vegemite)
    Farex
    Baby porridge
    Chicken
    Beef mince
    That's probably about it so far in regards to regular things anyway.

    Ok so these are the things Iwould suspect :
    Leek/onion/garlic
    Yoghurt
    Pear
    Apple
    Apricot
    Wholemeal bread (butter and Vegemite)

    If you want to test it out I would do this:

    - Swap the leek/onion/garlic for celery, just for a few days.
    - Swap the wholemeal bread for an alternative just for a few days - use Ancient Grains Sumer Spelt or Ancient Grains Euphrates Oat (both from health food store or Edwards spelt (from coles) I think the ancient grains would be better for a bub, it's quite soft.
    - Leave off the vegemite.
    - Avoid Apple and pear
    - Use Liddells lactose free yoghurt for a few days.

    2-3 days should be enough for the foods to clear her system. Then re-introduce the removed foods one by one, 2-3 days apart and watch for reactions.

    How are her poos? Are they "well- formed" (as they say!) or does she tend towards constipation or diarrhea?

    I liken it to Nutella. Thick, not formed, not baby runny.
