Sometimes the little man burps great and other times not at all. Last night I put him down after he didnt burp and he spit up majorly on himself and in bed, this really worrys me. I always feel like they might choke or something. Any burping tips?

I found DD burped less and spit up less using Playtex ventaire wide with the slow flow nipples. I swear by these bottles. Also my burping trick was to put her tummy and face down across my lap. And lightly bounce my knee and pat her back. She went thru a period at a few weeks old where she would get so gassy she would just cry and cry and that's all that worked to get all the gas out. I found changing bottles helped a ton.

DD gets better burps if she is bounced slightly up and down while being patted on the back between the shoulders than if she is just patted.

I will try both of those burping tricks thanks. I do have the playtex ventair bottles but I have been using the smaller ones the hospital gave us because sometimes he eats less than 2 oz at a time and I measure everything by Milliters.

You could try tipping him back slightly and then back up and continue burping him. Sometimes that helps bring up the bubbles. Another thing that can help is to prop them up and firmly rub their back from the bottom up. Also try varying some harder pats with some lighter ones.

I was just gonna say baby sit-ups. Conrad needs burped after every nursing session or else he'll spit up too. They say BF babies swallow less air and don't need burped as much, but this kid finds a way to swallow air!

I have no advice about good burping. I am terrible at burping babies. DH is much better at it than I. One thing I do want to mention is that the pediatrician told me it is ok to give gas drops (we use Little Tummies) and that has helped. Lena is super gassy from both ends, and she also cries a lot from gas. The drops really do help.

It is 3am here now, and I am up with a very gassy baby. Gripe Water is a godsend, and it's all natural. It is pricey, but DD woke up fussy and arching her back, grunting. I felt awful. I have her some Gripe Water and she passed out 15 minutes later. I would much rather give her fennel and ginger at this point over chemicals, and it works great.

Gripe water is great for a fussy, gassy baby! I put a little pressure on baby's tummy (either by propping him higher up on my shoulder or sitting and leaning against the heel of my hand) and patting on the back. I also alternate with the back rubbing from the bottom up too
