Correct your feeding position
Incorrect attitude when breastfeeding can also cause digestive problems. This can lead to reflux of gas or acid. During feeding it is ensured that the baby's head is higher than his stomach. This attitude ensures that the milk reaches into the stomach and the air rises, which burps easily. If you leave your baby in your lap, be sure to keep your legs in such a position that the baby's head is slightly higher, or you may also use a soft pillow to support the neck.
Massaging Your Baby
Gently massage on your baby's stomach can alleviate digestive problems. Gently massage the area around the belly button of your baby. Do not press too hard. You can massage the belly of your baby in circular motions. You can also use some baby oil or cream to massage your baby's stomach.

Make sure your baby burps every time you feed them. It is also a way to stop digestive problems in babies. Bursting the air can prevent gas, and it also prevents your baby from squirting the milk. Wait a few minutes after feeding, then hold your baby on the shoulder and gently pat on the back.
