I'll suggest some organic tea to soothe him from wind. Try babies magic tea. It's organic preservative free tea best for babies.

Some babies are incredibly hard to burp, and if they don't burp, then it ends up at the other end and bothering their little tummys. Try different techniques on burping him. Some kids do great on your should getting little pats on the back. Some kids respond better to having their back rubbed (kinda hard). Two of mine responded better to sitting on my lap with my hand cupped around their chin supporting their heads and me switching between rubbing and patting. If he is formula fed, then talk with his pediatrican to make sure he doesn't need a gentler formula. If you are nursing, pay attention to the foods you eat and see if certain ones seem to cause more gas (my last couldn't handle if I had any dairy products). I can't exactly remember when I stopped burping my kids, but I know it was well beyond 6mo. Whenever they started burping on their own. What ever you do, don't stop burping now, because that will only make the gas worse.
