Congratulations on your new baby!! Unfortunately, gas in newborns can be very normal.  Baby's digestive system is immature, hence...gas.  You can't necessarily "get rid" of it.  

The best things to do for your baby to prevent and help a gassy tummy are:  burp frequently, keep baby upright and not flat for about 30 min after feeds, gently tummy massage and bicycle legs.   Hope that helps.

Gripe water is a life saver!!! I used that with both kids and it instantly helps their little bellies.n
