Health Tip: Burping Your New Baby

(HealthDay News) - To avoid a gassy, fussy baby, burping is an important part of every feeding.
Here are suggestions on how to burp your young infant, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation:
  • Sit upright, holding your baby against your chest so that the chin is against your shoulder.
  • OR: Sit your baby upright on your lap or knee, holding the chin gently in your hand.
  • Always support your baby's head.
  • Gently pat the infant's back, but not too hard.
  • If your baby seems fussy during feedings, stop the feeding a few times and burp him or her throughout, then again when the infant is done eating.
