No good suggestions. Does it have iron in it? It maybe to harsh for your baby's stomach? Other than that I have no clue?

I would talk to her doctor.  Is it burping gas or rear end gas?  Some people are just naturally gassier than others.

Learn the I love you massage. I did it when I lotioned the babies. It helped so much.

She may need the gentle formula. Formula is pretty harsh on a baby's system and sometimes they need the broken down milk proteins (both of my daughters did).

You can also try gas drops, but those just mask the overall problem.

Aww, baby gas is so hard on not just baby but mom. I would definitely speak to the doctor about it. It sounds to me like a gentler formula would be better for her.

Mylicon gas medicine may help. Also, put her on her tummy sometimes.

Are mylacon drops safe for 2 month old?
