Basics: Bloating is generally due to gas accumulation within the gut, primarily in the large intestines. This structure passes just under the breathing muscle before heading down to the anus. The gas content is what you swallow during feeds plus that made by germs. Common gut germs create gas as they feed off undigested material. Probiotics may help as would a food diary to see what makes you feel bloated
