Why do newborns burp?
Burping is an essential part of the newborn baby’s care process to make him/her comfortable. While feeding babies, he/she inhales air, which can raise and make them uncomfortable. In this manner, Burping assumes a vital part for a baby and effectively releases the air caught in the baby’s belly so he can settle and feed longer. Not every baby needs to be burped, and some can burp with little or without help.
When is the need for a burp?
There is no single rule for trim. You will need to look for clues that your baby required burping now. Some babies burped while breastfeeding, while others are healthy until breastfeeding.
In general, you do not burp as often as bottle-feeding because they tend to swallow less air during breastfeeding. But every baby is different, so follow your baby’s clues.
If he looks happy you can wait for him to finish his meal.
Possible signs babies have trapped wind are:
- Being unsettled or discomfort
- An arched back
- Clenched fists
- Crying due to stomach pain in babies.
- Pulling their legs up towards their tummy.
A good strategy is to require a burping break once each a pair of or three ounces if you are bottle-feeding, or once your baby switches breasts if you are nursing.

Facedown across your lap

Position to try for burping your newborn: – How to Burp a Newborn Baby?
Here are the 5 best poses you can use to flatten your baby without having to wait long.
- Shoulder Pose: Most parents like this posture. The baby hugs when the belly presses on the parent’s shoulders
- Sit: Tilt your baby forward in a sitting position (with your support) so the air will escape from your belly.
- Mobility: Getting around the house, going up and downstairs, or just moving around can be a bit complicated.
- Baby Massage: Gently massage your back with your hands or attach a grip of your choice. Use a roller to remove it.
- Lying down – If this is not possible, the baby may be leaning on his stomach, hoping that the constant pressure on the digestive system will work.
When to stop burping your baby:
Many parents know when to burp. After about 4 to 6 months, your baby will be able to feel better. Swallowing less and less air makes burping a useless task. This is because the more activity you do, the more your baby will burp. Start moving a little and sit up straight. It also reduces the need for burping when your baby starts eating solid, semi-solid foods. However, for babies with water or water problems, parental burping can take time.
