You did not mention what milk you 4e giving to your baby.
I assume you are breast feeding.
Gases are common in the small babies and you nicely burp the baby after feeds and also inbetween during feeds.
The costipation may be due to inadequate intake -so you feed more frequently and watch.
Do not make it a habit to give medicines for passing stool!
All the best
