In brief: Usually not a prob.

Most often, people just eat too fast/consume too many carbonated beverages and the burping can be reduced by limiting the beverages and eating slower. When we eat too fast we swallow more air, which needs to come back up.
If that does not help, it would be good to talk to your doctor as sometimes it can be a sign of a Hiatal hernia. Hope you are well!

In brief: TryAnMakeThemMusical

Just because you drink 3 bottles of beer with every meal doesn't mean you have to burp all the time.
..or soda...but in a like manner,no matter what you drink, you might be one of those lucky few who swallow a good amount of air while eating.So check that out while you are eating.Maybe some other kind of food you eat,like peppers or onions may cause a bit of the burpees. Usually, though, no worries

In brief: Probably normal ....

It's quite normal to burb after eating.
It's most often due to the air which is normally swallowed while eating but it may also be exacerbated by gas producing carbonated drinks and certain legumes such as peas, lentils, beans, etc. Lactose intolerance can also contribute to this as well but you would have other symptoms along with burbing.
