    Default Tmi... Breastfeeding and farting!

    So im exclusivley breastfeeding my LO and not sure if this is a factor to my problem. For the past 2 weeks i have been farting absolutley rancid rotten eggs style... Its really becoming a problem. It was funny to begin with but now its really embarrassing.

    My diet is the exact same as always but im trying to eat less.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't know if it's linked to bf but I bf too. I farted a lot after the birth. I thought it was more connected to the birth but I don't know how or why. Anyway the good news is it has settled with time

    Was just going to say this....I found my flatulence was due more to the birth, as opposed to BFing.

    When I said "settles with time" I didn't mean a couple of weeks. I'm now 17 months pp

    I started with bad flatulence during pregnancy, then it got worse post-birth (still have it 4.5mths later but getting better).

    I'm seeing a women's physio at the moment who said it's very common for women to have high flatulence post birth, particularly those who had a VB. This is due to the weak pelvic floor muscles that normally hold everything together, including your shaphincter (sorry if tmi) that controls this usually. It does get better faster if you do your pelvic floor exercises 
