I agree with lisa the tummy drops works it did on my son it sounds like colic to me and a change in formula may do the trick and less air intake the better if he does have colic . Call the doctor and ask what to do before trying anything he ll tell you if you need to bring him are not .

the gas aid i find helps best is ovol drops i also rub his tummy above his hip bones and hold his tummy and lightly bounce

Tummy drops? Massage his tummy, burp him during bottles, maybe try a formula that is easy on tummies mixed with breast milk if nursing, or a new bottle that may reduce aid intake. If u are nursing try a different position to reduce air intake while nursing.

Sounds like a visit to the pediatrician is in order. You may need to switch out his formula or if you are breastfeeding it may be something that you are eating that is bothering him.
