In brief: Proper Burping
Hard to describe.
I usually show parents how to do it during a visit; a proper burp looks harder than it really is.

Burp the baby and discuss with your pediatrician other options such as mylicon drops

When you feed the baby make sure that he does not swallow air from the bottle, make sure that the bottle is down and that the air is above the milk.

In brief: Chamomile tea
For those babies who aren't breast feeding, excessive gassiness may be a result of a formula that's just not the right match for baby.
Play around with the formula type, but while you do that, try some chamomile tea. A few teaspoons once or twice a day is quite safe for baby, and may aid gassiness greatly. Just make sure the tea is not too hot when you give it to baby.

In brief: Watch your own diet
A great deal of the time, breast feeding moms can affect the amount of gas their baby produces by watching the foods in their own diet.
Cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli and cabbage) can make you and your baby quite gassy. Baby's stomach can also be affected by too much dairy-rich, fried, or spicy foods in the diet, but not one answer is the same for everyone. Play around.
