The baby is young, the digestive system of the gastrointestinal tract is immature, and the lactase content in the small intestine is insufficient. When formula milk or breast milk is fed, lactose enters the large intestine before being fully digested in the small intestine. In the digestive tract, lactose is fermented through the action of intestinal bacteria and other digestive enzymes, which makes the bad bacteria producing gas proliferate and form gas.

2. Daily factors: excessive air consumption and flatulence during lactation

① Pure breastfeeding: breastfeeding mothers eat too much easy to produce gas food, the baby is prone to flatulence after breast milk;

② Formula feeding: the size of the nipple hole of the milk bottle is not appropriate, and it is easy to inhale air when drinking milk;

③ Baby crying: also easy to swallow air.
