Burping Your Baby

Try to burp your baby during and after breastfeeding or bottle-feeding. It's also a good idea to try burping your baby halfway through a feeding. Burping helps remove swallowed air. To burp, hold the baby in an upright position so that her head is directly above her stomach. Sometimes a baby will not be able to burp, so don't try to force one. Don't be alarmed if your baby spits up a few drops of her feeding when being burped.
