Burping Position Question

I'm trying to perfect the burping position where I put the cloth under his chin but he moves so much on me. Any tips?

  • drape the cloth over YOUR hand and let his chin rest on your hand in the crook of your hand between your thumb and forefinger. That way you have a good grip on him it keeps him from falling and upright and if he spits up the cloth is there to catch it.

  • I tried instead of sitting him where he was leaned over my lap I'd set baby on the edge of lap so he's facing off onto the floor.....hopefully that makes sense lol......I think this way helps with legs draping off your legs theres nothing to push off of and therefore less wiggle.
