Gas is...: ...Basically swallowed air. Ask any plumber - the only way to get it out is for it to come out the other end from where it came in. Good, vigorous, frequent burping during and after feeds will cause less air to enter the bowel, so less gas. Gripe water does nothing for gas itself, but seems to calm crying by something like aromatherapy.
