In brief: Risk of Harm

The risk of doing harm by giving an infant a medication for this far outweighs the potential benefit.
I recommend f/ u with her primary doc to determine if there any dietary adjustments that should be considered (ie, formula type, lactose sensitivity, etc). Most important is that baby is feeding regularly and continuing to grow despite any flatus. Good luck.
