Default How often do you have to burp a young infant? – 01-07-2009, 06:37 AM

I’ve gotten so many responses from friends and I am not sure what to do. My baby is just under 2 weeks old. She is already up to 3 1/2 to 4 oz at a time. Someone told me to burp her after every 1/2 oz, but most of the time, she won’t. So I increased it to every oz, and again, most of the time, she won’t. How often does a 2 week old infant eating that much need to be burped? Thank you so much – first time mom here!

ive always burped bub at the end of a feed, if she pulls away and fusses through the feed then burp but like my girl she may only need a burp at the end

u have to give a baby a break when they eat. to come up for air. i would usually wait till she was half way done, give her a breather for about a minute then try and burp her. usually that worked. if u burp them too soon they will spit it up, so let ur baby breath before burping

With bottle feeding I would just pause half way and burp her, then burp at the end too. If she stops feeding more often during the feed you can try burping her. It also depends how hungry she is, if she wants to keep drinking don’t insist she burps.Don’t worry, you will soon get a routine going, and it won’t matter what everyone else says because YOU will know your baby best.

I breastfeed, so i don’t know if it’s different…but i generally burpe once when we have finished a side and then again at the end.Some babies to always burp straight away…sometimes you have to lie them down and pick them up again….but don’t stress too much if she doesn’t burp all the time…she’ll let you know if she needs to.

Usually half way through for a 5 minute period then after the bottle for another 5 min period this was very sound advise from a new mums 24 hour hotline babies should feed for 20 mins then be burped for 10 mins
