At 5 weeks it might just be that she's more aware of the gastric distress she's been having all along.  My LO scream every time he has to fart.  Which is often.  You can try the drops, but they may make the problem worse.  My best advice is to let time work it out.  In the meantime, my LO likes being held upright and jiggled.  Some babies like being held face down with pressure on their tummies.  And usually sucking helps.  :-)

try giving her some simethicone drops for infants. here in the states, you can find them right next to the adult gas relievers in any store. the most common brand here is Mylicon. good luck! 80)
