Gas and bowel distention in a 1 year old

My 17 month-old has had gas and bowel distention since she was a preemie in the NICU. The general consensus is that she swallows too much air. She is also trached for tracheomalacia. Has anyone had any gas issues with their little ones and is there anything you can do besides mylicon? Is there a prescription med available? The Dt is concerned that her gas will cause reflux and we are going back to the GI next week.
