I agree with all here, I would make sure you check the bottles that you are using. Dr. Browns i heard is good as well. but i use the platex nurser with the latex flat top only the slow flow only as well. i stupidly bought the fast flow once and wow the baby was drinking too fast and it was just horrible with gas.

Burp baby right before you feed.
Burp baby after every 1 1/2 to 2 ounces .
Burp baby after you are finished.

I know it seems like a lot but it does help some.
You dont have to pat hard you could just rub. Dont forget that they go through growth spurts at about 3,6,8,10,12,14,16 weeks and so forth. Its a race to keep drinking formula but try to make sure you stick with the burping before during and after. It will surely help. Also the football hold helps the discomfort and the swing we used as well was a life saver. If you do not have one get one. Or ask mom to go get one for ya. After feeding if you need a break of holding baby put baby in that swing. That soothing swinging feeling can comfort some kids.

NOw as for YOU!!!! You NEED to take a breathe and relax and know that this will pass.....I am sure you are going nuts trying to deal with this and crying from the lack of sleep. If you are home with baby during this time then sleep when the baby sleeps. DO NOT become super mom.... THat laundry for dh can go to the dry cleaners, you only need a clean tshirt and shorts....Baby's clothes can be hand washed real fast before you go to bed at nijght and dry in the morning....Dont worry about keeping up with the house too too much right now....You need to sleep when baby does atleast twice a day. Regardless of who says what to you.(been there) That kitchen floor will still be there tomorrow but your baby will be a day older and you wont get that back tomorrow and your health is more important than the dishes. You are not being lazy if you take care of yourself and your baby first. Trust me been there.!;)

Hugs to you
