Babies should have nothing other that breastmilk or formula. The damage that anything you give does to the digestive system is worse than gas or constipation.
Your baby may be swallowing air while feeding or at other times. Try and watch and see if that's the problem. It could be the bottle or pacifier. Sometimes babies cry for unknown reasons and moms may think it's gas, the formula, something they are eating if they are breastfeeding but it is really the baby is just crying. It can go on for months and it is so difficult!!
