Another one of the most common infant problems is abdominal distention. You’ll notice that your baby looks like she has a slight potbelly. It usually occurs when your baby swallows a little extra air while feeding or crying, or from constipation or gas. These issues should pass on their own. There are plenty of ways to help your baby pass gas, but more on that later. Though distension can occur in otherwise healthy babies, you might want to take your baby to the doctor just to be sure, as it can sometimes be a symptom of a more serious health issue.
