My three and a half month old buckling is bloating. It isn't severe yet but is bad. His left side is quite distended and I can hear the air when I tap it. I have my girls walking him and massaging his side. He won't eat any baking soda. We just got new alfalfa hay but it is mixed with the old. It is a lot leafier though. What do I do?

Mix the baking soda with a little water so its sticky - ball it up and stuff it in his mouth.

Massage his stomach and keep him walking.

Also some mineral oil will help pass the gas through

I add enough water to drench...forhim maybe 1/4 teaspoon Baking soda and 3 cc water...I find it easier to get that down the hatch ;) and as Stacy said walking and messaging..

We got about a table spoon down. We are still walking. He is burping but I haven't seen poop.
