Home / Baby feeding issues / Baby feeding issues / Soothing sensitive tummies for babies


When your baby is having tummy troubles, such as gas and spit up, more often than not, it’s not something to be terribly concerned about – but you do want to get informed and be prepared.

What could make a baby’s tummy so sensitive in the first place?

It’s certainly not uncommon for newborn babies to have tummy discomfort in the first few months of life. This is often due to their small tummy size and still-developing digestive system.

Some things that might help include:

  • Frequent pausing and burping during feeds;
  • Experimenting with different feeding positions (notably, sitting baby upright);
  • Using a formula for fussy babies.

Similac offers two formulas that may help soothe your baby’s upset tummy.

Similac Total ComfortTM, our tummy-friendly and easy-to-digest formula may help. With gentle, partially broken down protein, Similac Total ComfortTM just might do the trick.
