Seems like you have done almost everything.... Maybe try parents choice sensitivity, its suppose to be specifically for gas, also ur son could be Lactose intolerant and it is lactose free so that could also help if that was the case . But you could also try a different brand all together, my friends son was really gasy and when she switched to Similac Soy Isomil: Soy Baby Formula - and that worked really well maybe parents choice has a soy formula, but even through soy milk is not such a great smell and similac is more expensive it cant hurt too try at least. I would really suggest talking to your sons pediatrician and tell them what all you have tried and they should be able to help you. If they suggested all that you tried and nothing is working and they still don't have answers than maybe try another doctor. He could be lactose intolerant, or could be something else, but also try too buy bottles that reduce gas and air intake, because too much air is what usually causes gas, I looked at some articles on WebMD and did some quick research to answer this question and best bottles would be dr.browns, tommee tippee anti gas and fussiness or just find bottles that say reduces gas or air intake.

Wish you well hope your little guy feels better soon.
