  • I think you are doing good. You do need to burp halfway through feedings (at the least) some babys need it more often.

  • I kept burping DD midway until she was about 3 months old. I kept burping her afterwards for several more weeks just because she always was a spitter. Hey, if burping halfway helps, keep doing it!

  • My DD is 5 months and I still burp her about half way through and then she continues eating her bottle.
