Do pears cause gas in infants?


Answer by  DrColbath (103)

I should start off by saying, foods that produce gas in one person may not cause gas in another. However, most foods that contain carbohydrates and fiber, such as pears, can cause gas. Pears, like most fruit, contain soluble fiber, which isn't broken down until it reaches the large intestine - the part of the body where gas is produced.

Any fruit or vegetable has the potential to cause gas in infants. Body chemistry varies from infant to infant. If pears were newly introduced, it may just take some time for the infants body to adjust to the new food. Gas is common in infants and usually does not warrant huge concern unless it is causing other discomforts.

if we feed pear there is a chance for forming gas in infants less than 6 months old. because their digestive system is not able to digest food other than breast milk. breast milk is best for you baby's good health up to 6 months

Pear juice will not cause gas. Solid pears and pear puree can cause gas if it has significant fiber content.

If its a pears soap you mean. Pears is a good soap for baby and elders also. How could soap cause gas in infants as it is applied only externally. Only the smells they inhale.
