    Default Distended belly

    At just 7 days old, my little peanut's belly blew up. It was so distended that she looked like a pregnant baby. We have seen the specialist, done the test and they have no clue. It's a ton of air in there. Anyone else gone threw this? FYI she's almost 6 months old and still having issues..

    I have no advice at all, but I am so sorry you are going through this.

    I'm so fed up with the specialist we go to. She'll like it's just air.. The quit investigating the issue.. I'm just going to call it quits going to that dr. I heard there it pt that can help relieve the issue.

    I just saw you are from WNY. That is were I grew up and all of my family lives.

    I would strongly suggest if you are not happy with your current doctor, to get a second opinion. Either Erie or Cleveland?

    mmm air? has she had a BM? I haven't had this happen but my little ones belly seems to be pretty tight when she's gone 3-4 days without a poop. She's gone back the age that I heard of in the NICU about preemie bellys being big. Our daughter never had this problem, she's on the little side. It makes diapers and clothes still small. I would def look into a new dr. I hate when they don't seem to have an answer and just wanna wait and see.

    she poops and burps good. Little poop machine went 3x in the last 24hr. They were like it's from the bottles... She had the issue while tube feeding. Personally I think it has to do with how her body breaks stuff down and creating air, not swallowing air..

    You are the one who knows her the best. If you feel something is not right, insist on a second opinion.
