You may need to try another formula . They have many on the market that helps with sensitive tummies . For gas, there is an over the counter gas drop. It really helps . Bicycle kicks as well.

Bicycle kicks for sure! Put them on their backs and move their legs like they're riding a bike. My LO would sometimes toot while doing this!

My baby struggled with gas as well. Doctor suggested to give him gas drops with each feeding. And laying him faced down where his tummy is over your legs while patting his back works too. My baby would let out gas every time ha ha

Do you have Parents Choice with iron formula in the USA? That's the only formula that didn't make my daughter constipated or spit up.

Gas drops can give every 2 hours. Helps within 10-15 minutes

Ok so I went through a period of this with my baby. What worked for us was switching, not only to a sensitive gentle formula, but also to a readymade in a bottle. It is more $$$ but we mostly bought in bulk at bjs or SAMs club.

My baby was acting like this for the first few weeks and we started using gripe water right before bedtime and we switched all ignore bottles to the Dr. Browns bottles. They seemed to make a big difference and she didn't spit up as much either.

Gas drops were very helpful for us. The work almost instantly. But also look into the formula for sure.

Colic Calm gas drops worked within minutes for us. Also if you have a blender try to mix the formula in there if your using powdered. Shaking the bottles creates a lot of bubbles. We make a 20 oz batch at a time and keep it refrigerated until it is time to eat! Good luck.

Gas drops aren't really a permanent solution they actually don't get rid of the gas they just make it move out faster which can cause pain also. Try changing formula. Either sensitive or maybe even soy baby could be lactose intolerant

My LO had gas....switched from regular Enfamil to Enfamil Gentlease (it's in a purple can). Saw results by the next day. You can also try the gas drops.

Probiotic really helped my baby with gas & crying. She use to cry a lot and after a couple of weeks on probiotic it decreased a ton. The doctors said she had colic. You at want to check with your pedi and see if they think it's colic.
