  • Are you burping him halfway through his feeding or only at the end when he is done? He may just be gassy, a lot of babies require a "mini" burp in the middle to help stop spit up after all is said and done.

  • Also another thing is to keep him upright, dont' put him on his back. Either keep him on his tummy or sit him up in your lap. My daughter had reflux and it's just sad to see your child go through that

  • I do burp him midway and I also try to keep him upright for about 30 minutes after he eats.
