Possibly: Could be signs of lactose intolerance. If you experience the same symptoms with other milk products such as cheese and ice cream. Then it is very likely. A trial of lactaid pills may be helpful.

Good latch: Making sure your baby has a good latch so they aren't gulping air will help. That being said some babies are "gulpers" and swallow lots of air no matter how good the latch is.

Is it common to feel bloated in the beginning of pregnancy?

Yes: The hormones of pregnancy change your bowel function and slow it down. In early pregnancy, most women will develop constipation and increased gas. The uterus also enlarges as the pregnancy progresses, increasing the feeling of fullness and pressure. Trying to prevent constipation by increasing fluids and fiber may help.

Less fiber: Generally gas is caused by consumption of foods high in fiber and other undigestable carbohydrates (sugars used in diabetic foods for instance). Plenty of exercise and avoiding constipation may also help.
