  • it's not good. don't let her suck on your hair. It can cause a hairball in her stomach and will need to be removed with surgery. Also, by discouraging it now, you may stop her from sucking on her own hair later on.

  • I think you're asking if it's ok to burp her sitting up. It is. Maybe if you sit her up and lean her forward against your hand, you will have more success.

  • I would not let her suck on your hair. Also, I would just set her up to burp.That is how I did it.
