If he is ebf I wouldn't, it can mess with his virgin gut and make things worse. You can drink chamomile tea and he will get it from your milk. You can also run his belly clockwise and bicycle his legs to help.

I hope he feels better!

If it's not bugging him I would not do anything. If so I would just rub his lower back firmly (not hard) after giving him a nice warm bath

I would also rub belly clockwise two fingers above the belly button and do the bicycle legs. 

I agree gripe water will mess with virgin gut
