How to Burp a Baby

How to Burp a Baby. Whether nursing or taking a bottle, babies
tend to suck in air as they eat. Burping helps them get the bubbles out—and
heads off little tummy aches at the pass. You will need A breast-feeding or bottle-feeding
baby And a burp cloth or two and an absorbent bib (optional). Step 1. Know when to burp your baby. If you’re nursing, burp her when you switch
from one breast to the other. If you’re bottle-feeding, burp her every time
she downs an ounce or two. In both cases, you should also burp her at
the end of the meal. A baby may also need to be burped between
feedings. If she seems uncomfortable or is crying and
you can’t figure out why, try burping her—it may be random gas. Step 2. Sit your baby upright on your lap, facing
you but angled slightly to one side and leaning slightly forward with her chest against your
hand. Cup her chin with the thumb and index finger
of that hand. With your other hand, firmly pat or rub your
palm/fingertips in circles in the middle of her back, using gentle pressure to help push
out the air. When using this position, you may want to
put a bib on the baby to protect her clothes—and your hand—if she spits up. Step 3. If that’s not working, place a burp cloth
on your thigh and lay the baby across your lap. Let her tummy rest on your other thigh—this
will put gentle pressure on her belly and help push out the gas as you rub or pat her. Step 4. If this doesn’t work either, drape the burp
cloth over your shoulder and hold the baby against it, being sure to support her head
and neck with one hand. With the other, rub or pat her back firmly. Step 5. Any of these methods should bring results—a
nice resounding belch—within a minute or two. If she doesn’t burp, that’s okay too. Sometimes these things have a way of working
themselves out. Did you know Feeding babies sometimes spit
up what looks like an entire meal’s worth of milk—but usually it’s just a teaspoonful.
