Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Yes, any medicine with simethicone. Gas-X is one namebrand OTC medicine with this ingredient.I had this problem and found this information on
Rolaids and Tums are also okay. I chew Tums like candy when I have to deal with heartburn. And it usually helps with abdomenal bloating and discomfort related to gas after a while.Try limiting consumption of foods which trigger the gas problem you're experiencing too. If it's heartburn, limit onions, soda, spicy foods, and other heartburn triggers and don't lay down or lounge on a full stomach. If it's gas on the other side of your digestive tract, limit beans, broccoli and other gas-producers and get enough fiber to keep your bowels moving so the gas is less likely to get stuck and multiply before reaching the place where you can let it out.
