OMG! Burping help, please!

My baby will automatically puke up her formula if she doesn't get burped during feeding. The thing is, sometime no matter how many times I try or positions I try to burp her with, she just won't burp. Then it never fails, a few minutes later I have a gusher. I just don't know what else to do!

 

Aso, is it okay to feed her soon after the puking? She gets hungry not long after, usually..

  • Have you tried laying her in your lap with her belly on your thigh? the extrap external pressure might help.

    For that problem I use the middle position in the photo. But I hold the babies head up by cupping the chin with my hand. Then I sit the baby up as straight as possible and gently bounce my knee while patting the baby on the back. It might take a few times to get the hang of it, but it produces a burp every time.


    Good luck! If you try it and still need some advice about how to do it, pm me. I am more than willing to talk you through it.

  • That should say baby's head... not babies. Dumb fingers!

  • i don't feed my baby right after she pukes cuz she just pukes again. maybe you are feeding her too much. dont make her finish the bottle if she doesn't want to.
