Burping baby between and after feeds is probably one of the best solutions.
All men might be created equal but all bottles are not. Choose a bottle with a curved neck to avoid gulping of excessive air.
If you suspect milk allergy in your baby, you could try changing formulas or switch to soymilk.
Even if you know the reason for your baby's gassiness, this is of little use to you during a crying bout. Deal with your baby's crying spells as calmly as you can.
You can also try baby bends and tummy rolls with advice from your healthcare professional. Ask your doctor about antigas medications with simethicone.
The time-tested method of rocking can often soothe a gassy baby to sleep. Make sure you take a break to soothe your frayed nerves.
Take breaks, get help, join discussion groups, blog, talk about it...do anything that helps. Rest assured that baby's gassiness will significantly reduce by the time she is six months old.
