  • Lay her on her back and bring her knees to her chest, in the "bicycle motion".

  • Bicycle her legs, lay her on her left side and pat her back, simethicone drops are a lifesaver. But remember, her body is still adjusting to all these new things, so it might just be something that only time will help.

  • bicycle her legs, warm baths, gentle belly or back rubs, mylicon(simethicone). If she is bf, get rid of dairy and caffeine for about a week and see if that helps- those are common triggers for bf baby gas.
