Are you burping baby after each feeding? Are you using formula or breastfeeding? Have you tried gas drops? Is baby sleeping in your room?

To help ease the gassiness you can take his legs and cycle them as if he is riding a bike. Push them gently against his belly and also give him some belly time. If you are bottle feeding him you might need to change bottles to better help that.

scroll down on that site and it is the 5 s's to soothe a baby. This helped as well as a vacuum running. good luck! both of mine were colic..it was a pain in the butt. Also make sure that he passed his hearing test in the hospital. If he didn't have one done then I would think about getting one done to make sure no extra fluid is stuck in there. good luck!

This. I can tell you a million different ways to help with gas but need a few more specifics, first.

What makes you think you don't have enough milk? Do you put baby to the breast or are you pumping only?

What kind of formula? The formula could be causing some gas. How much are you offering to baby?

A warm bath, bicycle legs, tummy time, infant massage, and just cuddling can all help with a fussy gassy baby.

Its probably the formula. Try rubbing his back at the top instead of patting try moving his legs around like he is riding a bike while he is on his back. Who told you you aren't producing enough milk? They have special gas reducing bottles maybe try those if you are bottle feeding. Good luck I hope it gets easier soon.

A good infant probiotic will do wonders for a fussy baby!
