Gas problem is because of not burping properly. Everytime the child feeds you should burp the child so that gases won't accumulate in abdomen. Top feeding and using bottle may aggrevate this. Using honey nipple will aggrevate this problem as child continoously suck on nipple with out any milk on sucking there are chances of swallowing air which again will aggrevate your problem of gases. More over that honey nipple can cause toothing delay or defects and speech delay. It can also cause infections.
