Infant has flatulence, sleep deprived, breast fed and formula milk. Suggest?

My baby (7 months,2 weeks) is waking up at night due to flatulence. When I pick him up, he curls himself backward until gas has been passed. We are really sleep deprived at this stage.
He is eating solids (porridge in the morning, butternut squash and chicken which I prepare, and then sweet potato at 17:00.
He is breastfed but I do supplement with formula milk at times.
