  • Maybe he is drinking too fast.
    Do you burp him every so often like after 3 to 4 oz. It could be just air trapped in there.
    Or his tummy is just doing it's job (digesting) if he seems to be ok.
    Don't worry about it. GL

  • Mine sounds like that after I drink water lol. Does he spit it up? If so he could have acid reflux. If he seems fine and doesn't have a tummy ache or anything Im sure its perfectly fine.

  • Ya... my stomach even does that when I drink a lot Lol if hes spitting up after eating he might be eating to much. Try using a lower level nipple so he has to drink slower and it gives him a chance to realize hes full. But it's not so much a bad thing... but if he is over eating he probably feels very full and uncomfortable after eating. I can also her my babys tummy growl when shes hungry sometimes Lol. Definitly nothing to worry about!

  • No he never spits up and I dont think I need to burp him anymore he burps louder then his dad lol on his own but he does drink fast that might be it.

  • My guy's belly makes all kinds of noise...just like Mommy's. Made for some interesting dates when I was younger! :)

  • No but it's happened to me when i drink to much liquid. When you eat solid foods it takes up space and has to digest. But with liquids it just sloshes around till you pee it out.
