Gabrielle Union found a way to relieve her daughter Kaavia James Union Wade’s gas. The mom used a bit of singing and movement to do the trick.
Kaavia was at work with her mom when the gas attacks began. “When your baby comes to work and has gas and you remember a ‘gas be gone’ trick,” Gabrielle told her Instagram fans. The actress went on to reveal that Savannah James, wife of NBA star LeBron James, taught her the trick that included dancing and singing.
Laura Marusinec, MD, gives parents a full explanation of the implications of baby’s battling with gas and how to rectify the problem. “A baby with excess gas will fidget and squirm because she is uncomfortable,” Dr. Marusines shares. “At times, if the gas is not expelled, the baby will let you know by sharing a painful cry. She may also curl up in a ball or draw her legs up in the air in attempts to compress the area that hurts.”
The physician advises moms and dads to give their babies a tummy rub to move the gas along and encourage release. Marusinec also says that laying the baby on his or her back and pedaling the infant’s legs as if he or she were riding a bike, as Gabrielle did in the video clip, is a great way to get rid of the excess air. “The movement may help get bubbles unstuck and move them through the intestines, so your baby can pass them naturally,” the doctor notes.
Kaavia James Union Wade is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s only child together. The celebrity couple parents four kids in all.
