Can PB cause gassiness/fussiness?

My 3 week old is super duper duper gassy and it really bothers her. I've been off dairy for a week (not hidden, though). I'm wondering if peanut butter could be bothering her? I eat a TON of it!

Maybe - but sort of unlikely.

Does she have regular gassy times? I mean at this stage baby is still getting all her digestion stuff worked out and it is typical for them to be gassy.

Keep in mind dairy ( or any allergen for that matter) can take a while to completely get out of your system, then get out of hers - so if there's an issue with dairy it could be a few more weeks to see a total improvement from eliminating that!

HTH

Good luck

Could be--peanut butter was the cause of my friend's baby's issues. I'd give the dairy another week and if no improvement, try cutting out the peanut butter.

Dd gets really bad yucky poops if I eat peanuts, but peanut butter is okay for some reason. It's possible.
