How it works

Many parents wake up in the middle of the night having to tend to their babies for one reason or another. Most babies are hungry and are crying out to be fed. Other babies have wet or soiled their diaper and are crying out for a change. Other babies, however, have far more pertinent issues going on. For those babies that are not wet or do not want to be fed, the underlying condition may very well be gas or colic. The discomfort that is felt by the baby who is unable to pass gas or move their bowels is excruciating and being so young and so new to their body, a baby tends to cry and panic at the feeling of not being able to relieve themselves. To help out the parent who is in the desperate need to make their child as better as soon as possible, Fridababy has created a product called Windi the Gaspasser.

The Gaspasser may seem quite invasive at first, however, once you learn how to use the product effectively, it will help your child get over the hump of not having acquired the skill of passing gas or bowel movements or the child who has a hard time doing so. Whether it’s an allergy or some other dietary issue, the Windi Gaspasser by Fridababy may very well do the trick.

Design

Design

Windi the Gaspasser by Fridababy is designed to be as comfortable as possible for your baby. The Gaspasser is basically a hollow, plastic tube that gives your child the ability to move their bowels and pass gas once the applicator has stimulated the muscle of their colon that allows them to relieve themselves. The tip of the applicator is not very long at all and can only be inserted about half an inch or one centimeter into your child’s body. The applicator only inserts as far as the muscle that needs to be stimulated.

To avoid inserting the tube too far the tube gets extremely wide so that nothing else can enter your child’s body except for the applicator tip. The remaining part of the tube is completely hollow to allow the passing of gas or feces out of your child’s body. It should also be noted that the plastic applicator is BPA free and latex free to avoid any illness or allergic reactions.
How to Use

How to Use

The most effective way to use Windi the Gaspasser by Fridababy is to prepare before use. It is recommended that you clear away an area where you can change the baby without clutter and where you can create an area that you can keep clean. Once you have the area cleared away and you can lay your baby flat, you can then be free to use the tube.

Lay your baby on their back. Take the plastic tube and use a lubricant on the tip. The manufacturer recommends that you use coconut oil as a lubricant for insertion. Take coconut oil or whatever other lubricants you have chosen to use and rub it around the tube’s tip. Once you have done that, lift your baby’s legs up by their ankles as if you were going to change their diaper, and gently insert the tip of the tube into your child’s body. Wait a few seconds and then place a diaper or some other disposable cloth in front of your baby’s bottom because within a second or two you will begin to hear a whistling sound as the gas begins to pass out of your child’s body. What will follow will be feces as your child begins to push. You will experience feces coming through the tube or from out around the tube.

Once your child starts to push, very gently remove the plastic tip from your child’s body and allow them to continue to push out whatever waste they need to get out. With the diaper in front of them, you will be able to catch their feces in the diaper and then dispose of the diaper as you would if they soiled themselves naturally. Once all of the gas and waste has passed out of your child, you can wipe them or bathe them and place a new diaper on them.
How It Works

How It Works

For many babies, there is difficulty passing gas or waste because of dairy allergies or because your baby has not yet realized that they need to actively push waste out of their bodies. Inside all of us, there is a muscle that must be trained when learning how to use the bathroom. That particular muscle is the muscle that is trained during potty training. As adults, we know that once there is pressure against that muscle, we must go to the bathroom and relax and push waste out of our bodies.

Babies, on the other hand, have not yet learned that the feeling of pressure in their colon means that they have to push. In many instances, babies will clench even tighter when this happens and they back up their own systems. Many doctors recommend several ways to get your child to relax so that they will begin to push, but sometimes these methods do not always work and there needs to be a certain action taken to get the gas and waste out of your child’s body as soon as possible.

Windi the Gaspasser works by getting to the source of the problem and correcting the issue. The design of the tube is such that the tip can only be inserted as far as that colonic muscle that needs to be relaxed. Anything before or beyond that is not part of the solution. When inserted into your baby’s body, the tip’s length will exactly hit the muscle that needs to be relaxed. When the tip hits that muscle area, your baby will automatically relax and through stimulating that muscle by poking it, your baby will immediately pass gas and start to push out any feces that are inside of them.

The hollow tube acts as a path for the air and waste to pass out of the body without stopping up or clogging the tube. To that effect, it’s worth having a diaper on hand to collect the waste. Over time, your child will begin to realize that they must push when they feel pressure and relieve themselves of any waste or gas.
Disposing the Tube

Disposing the Tube

It is recommended by the manufacturer and by pediatricians that you do not reuse the plastic tube. Instead, throw them into the recycling bin never to be used again. If your child does pass waste while using Windi the Gaspasser, make sure you thoroughly rinse off the tube before you recycle the applicator because you don’t want to have live waste in your recycling bin or laying around anywhere. Some parents have found that if their child only passes gas and not waste, they have rinsed off the tube and used it a second time.

Once again, pediatricians and the manufacturer both warn against this as the tube’s tip is small and hollow and waste and bacteria, even from gas, can get caught in the tip and if you reinsert the tube a second time, you could very well pass germs on to your baby that could have serious ramifications. No matter how you use the applicator and no matter what the final outcome is of its use, always throw a used tube away never to be seen or used ever again. The manufacturer includes ten tubes per box so that you never have to use the same one a second time.
A little advice

A little advice

Windi the Gaspasser by Fridababy should be your last resort to helping your child pass gas or waste. Many pediatricians warn that if you are always helping your child pass waste they will never learn how to do it on their own. Windi the Gaspasser should never be used more than twice a day because of the harmful effects it could have on your child. Since babies use the bathroom up to ten times a day there are other methods of getting them to poop.
Bicycle Kicks

Bicycle Kicks

Some pediatricians recommend that parents who have a colicky baby or a baby that has issues going to the bathroom do bicycle kicks with their child. Lay your baby on their back and take hold of their ankles. Grip each one of their ankles with each hand. Once you do this you can start moving your child’s legs as if they are pedaling a bicycle. The movement of their legs in this motion stimulates their lower abdomen and helps the muscles of their colon to relax and become stimulated and, therefore, causing your child to start pushing. This method is a great alternative to having to use the plastic tube several times a week.
Rubbing the Belly

Rubbing the Belly

Another great alternative to get your child to pass gas and waste is to rub their belly. Many parents lie their child on their backs and gently rub their baby’s belly in a downward motion from the top towards their belly button. This motion with a tiny bit of pressure not only starts to move everything that is going on in your baby’s digestive system, but it also gives the feeling of things moving down and out. When your baby begins to experience this kind of motion, they immediately get the sensation to move things out of their body on their own. When this happens your child will relax themselves and then start to push out any gas or waste that has built up inside of their bodies.
Tummy Time

Tummy Time

Another great way to get your child to pass gas and waste is to engage your baby in tummy time. By being on their tummy, your baby will be applying enough pressure to their stomach to stimulate their muscles to push. The movements they will take to roll around and move around on their stomach will add the need to push out anything that is inside of their bodies.
Price

Price

Windi the Gaspasser by Fridababy is very inexpensive. For ten applicators you pay a fairly low price. Because pediatricians warn against using the tubes often because it will deter your baby from learning how to use the bathroom on their own, you will probably not use all ten tubes in the box. If you do use all ten, you probably won’t need to use more than that because if you must consistently use the tubes then your baby has a much larger issue that should be addressed with your pediatrician.

It is recommended to buy a box of Windi the Gaspasser before you think you’ll need it. It’s a great buy for when you are stocking up on all the medicinal needs you may need for your child as well as being a great gift for anyone who is expecting. In the rare occurrence that a new parent finds themselves with a constipated baby in the middle of the night, having the tubes on hand is a great way to save time and the discomfort of a baby.

Conclusion

For the parent who has a colicky baby or for the parent who happens to have a child with a rare case of constipation, Windi the Gaspasser by Fridababy is a great tool to have on hand. It will not only save you the frustration of having an uncomfortable baby but Windi the Gaspasser will also help you alleviate the pain as fast as possible. Whether it’s for yourself or a gift, Windi the Gaspasser is a great buy and should be in the medicinal arsenal of all parents with a newborn.
