DD1 was pretty noisy too so I think some of this will resolve itself with time, especially after the digestive system newness wears off. Just letting you know you're not alone... if you want you might trysidecarring the crib or a co-sleeper and moving him when he's very deeply asleep...
We have a lovely, full-sized co-sleeper attached to our bed that has been used almost entirely for naps and changing diapers! The boys are SOOOOO noisy, I simply cannot get a minute's sleep with them right next to me, so we have another bed set up for them in the bathroom attached to our room (they co-sleep swaddled with one another). In fact, even as they are napping now, I keep running into the room because they are both making so much noise in their sleep, I keep thinking they are waking up. I do remember the noise settling down with my daughter after a couple of months, so we hope to actually move them back into our room when that happens. For now, they are close enough for us to hear when the groans/burps/farts/stretches/squeaks/etc. reach a crescendo that indicates they *may* actually be waking up!
