  • mylicon drops help....also, i took a sock and put uncooked rice in it & tied the opening into a knot...put it in the microwave until just warm - put that on her belly. The pressure and the warmth will help.

    Also - pumping her she's riding a bicycle will help.

    Good luck!!

  • Sometimes giving baby a little time on her tummy can help work the gas out of her system, too, along with the other suggestions.
