  • Cup your hand and pat the bottom of his back patting up toward his neck, helping whatever gas bubbles inside his stomach UP. Another way is to put him face down on your knees (head on one knee, feet hanging off the other knee) and bounce him gently, him being on his stomach is going to help any gas come up.

  • also...... I have noticed a lot of moms are way too gentle with the back patting. Your baby is not going to break from some heavy pats on the back!! I'm not saying hit hard enough to leave a bruise or anything, but it should make a clear thudding sound when patting. I always did and my son burped like a champ most times.
