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.
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
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
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
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
Rubbing the Belly
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.
