Have you tried infant gas drops? They really help my dd when she gets gassy.

Rub clock-wise circles with olive oil on her belly

Have you tried eliminating dairy from your diet?  Dairy is a very common cause of painful gas in infants.

Talk to the ladies in the breastfeeding group. Breastfed babies only need 3 oz of breastmilk in a bottle every 3 hours no matter how old they are. Go to kellymom & search bottle feeding a breastfed baby. You might need to pump more often & drink more fluids. Formula is probably causing the gas :(

at work I can only pump on scheduled breaks (and I can only get in 15 mins max). I can only pump .5 a session. but I havent pumped since she started solids. just been hand expressing to relieve pressure and keep milk flow going. I drink 3 litres a day... ive talked to them and I just get a headache now...they dont even try to help me. just insist my whole issue is derived from one thing. and theyve never seen her.

I think you should start pumping once every morning to help give your daughter more breastmilk while you're at work. It's probably a combination of the food and formula. Ease up on the solids for a while until the problem goes away. I don't know how much food she's eating on a daily basis, but having less would probably help her.

It's most likely the formula. Gas drops work wonders
