Another thing to try is gripe water. Gas drops should help as well. I also agree with swaddling. My boys had to be swaddled like little burritos to sleep well. Also if the gas is constant talk to her pediatrician. She may be lactose intolerant which will cause severe gas and constipation. Good luck with everything.

Try giving her some gas meds. For her to sleep try swaddling her. Read this book called The happiest baby on the block. My baby is 6 weeks and just by swaddling her she sleeps 5 hours in a row at night eats then back to sleep for another 3-4 hours! My baby is really gassy to but sometimes just swaddling them helps calm them daown. Look the book up you will be surprised. Hope this helps a little.
