In brief: Foods, feeding

Gas is a product of digesting certain foods.
If you are breast feeding, you may want to limit your intake of certain foods -cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower), beans, garlic, onions, chocolate, coffee and citrus fruits, dairy can also cause gas. Your baby can become gassy from feeding too fast and swallowing too much air. Try to burp your baby every 5 min during feedings.

Swallowing air from feeding, sucking, or crying.
Also, backed up stool can produce gas as well.
