Have you tried gas drops?

Gos drops help. Also using the bottles with the plastic in them so you can squeeze out as much air as possible before feeding her.

 

There are a couple of things to do to help. If you lay her on her back and take her knees and (together) gently bend them and push them toward her stomach then start circling her legs that helps push the gas out. I was amazed at how much gas my child had in her when I did this. It takes a minute to get it started but it helps a lot. There is also a way to carry her, I can’t remember, something like (it’s been 4 years since I’ve had to do this) her on her belly over your arm, slightly angled down I think and patting her on her back. Of course holding her really tight so you don’t drop her.

 

Hand in there, it gets easier. I wouldn’t start her on any food yet, at 4 months the doctors don’t even recommend starting them on the baby cereal. Have you had her checked out? It could be acid reflux. TMy daughter has acid reflux and she would always wake up crying and screaming. Poor babies.

Is the formula low iron? If not, try a low iron formula. (Of course talk to your doc first) Larger holes may help and the gas drops may also help. In the mean time, warm towels on the stomach and when you play with him, try doing bicycles with the legs and rub his stomach in circles. Vibration will also help move the gas, so a ride in the car, on top of the washer, or one of those back massagers. Sorry little one is going through that, D’s had the same thing when he was young.

Try a warm bath followed by a baby massage in the evenings. It helps them relax and pass the wind easier. I also layed their tummy accross my legs and rubbed their back, just applying that light pressure on their tummy helped.
