3 week old breastfed baby with seriously offensive wind - any help

Hi all - sorry to disturb but any help/ideas gratefully received. Our 3 week old baby has terrible wind, sore tummy but she burps lots but also terrible very stinky farts. She is fully breastfed although totally through a bottle as she couldn't feed off me and as far as I remember last time around breast fed babies don't usually get such bad wind....does anyone have any thoughts/ideas?
thanks so much.

It is a myth that breastfed babies don't get wind. However, it is the bottle rather than the formula that gives it to them so could explain your problem. I use infacol and it seems to help although she does scream when passing wind
