Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone else has an EBF baby that has MEGA stinky gas??? DD was treated for oral thrush at 3weeks with Nilstat oral drops which were a great success but i am wondering if this has perhaps affected the way her gut functions now? She is not at all unsettled or uspet by this - i wish i could say the same for me though!! It's seriously so bad that when she does it in public i have to leave the area immediately for fear that people will think it is ME! LOL.
Anyone have any ideas why this is?

No idea, but my dd, 8 weeks, is the same! So stinky! And she's also exclusively bf. I can guarantee she's never had anything else, so I have no idea.
Very interested in others replies, as I thought we were alone with this..

My solely breast fed 3 month old DS is so bad! From 4 days old his farts were the worst thing. They almost even rivalled DP's!
I have a feeling his is related to the fenugreek and blessed thistle combo I'm on due to supply issues, as I didn't have the smell problem with DD and the fenugreek tablets are the only thing different that I'm doing (didn't know about them when DD was born)

So glad i am NOT alone on this one!!! I have done a bit of reading since posting this and experimented with eliminating things from my diet such as sugary foods, caffine and garlic - none of this seems to have any effect!!!
Also, DD only poos once every 5-6 days or so - not that i am particularly alarmed by this as i have heard this is quite common in EBF babies.
I'm gonna try some probiotics for both of us and see how that goes.
