In brief: Don't Panic!

I have seen many a new parent drive themselves crazy trying to "get a burp" out of their baby.
If the baby has swallowed excess air, he/she will usually burp shortly after feeding, especially when put in a more upright position. But, if there is no burp, don't panic! worst case, baby may spit up....Nothing more dangerous or uncomfortable than that.

In brief: Keep trying

Babira are naturally not great burpers for a few months.
They essentially need to practice, just like walking and talking. Keep trying and babies will get better at it.
