Do Babies Grow Out Of Need For Burping
Swallowing air: All humans burp. Its a fact of life. We swallow air along with our food and when we swallow a lot, some of it may come back out in the form of a burp. You only notice in a baby because they arent good at it and so it stands out more dramatically than in older kids. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Head up: Tummy gas needs a chance to come up and be vented. Gravity will hold the feed down and with the head upright, it is only a matter of time. Baby will swallow a bit of spit now & then , unfolding the stomach entrance & allowing air to vent if properly positioned. I like to hold baby up on my forearm facing out, cradeling his/her chest with my hand, head up. A pat on the back is not always needed. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

My 7week old infant has reflux and is on meds but is still having bad reflux. Besides keeping her upright and burped well. What can I do?
No pain & is happy?: If a young, refluxing baby is already on meds, getting burped, being held upright (with nothing pressing on the tummy), the question becomes: is there good growth and no pain? If the baby is happily growing despite spitting every feeding, it's ok to keep watching along with the pediatrician. Sometimes one can try switching to small, frequent bottle feedings to regulate the intake per feeding. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My sister's infant having breath problems after feeding. Not frequently but i think it has to do with burping and nasal cleansing?
We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?
Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
