How to Burp a Newborn



Some babies will burp while feeding, others will not burp regardless of what you do. Some babies get uncomfortable if not burped, while others seem fine. Common burping methods include holding the baby over your shoulder while gently rubbing and patting the back or, holding the baby in a sitting position, supporting the neck and gently patting or rubbing the back. Spitting up is normal, especially when you are burping your baby. If the spit up is milky-looking and is not painful for your baby, we do not worry about it. If there is forceful vomiting, you should contact your pediatrician for further guidance.
