Is it at night? Or, all the time?
Eating with your mouth open, drinking with straws and sleeping with your mouth open all contribute to more are. Soft drinks are bad for gas, too, like Scrap Girl mentioned. Foods are more individual as to how bad the gas is.
I use a pouch with a filter and they work as long as you are standing (gravity) but when you lay down to sleep they will fill with air. They do start working once you get up. Some you the E-Z Vents to expel air and its really just personal preference!
How long have you had your ostomy? Gas can be really bad in the beginning, too, until you start eating real foods.
