    Default Burping - the final frontier


    Does the time come when you don't have to burp the baby after every feeding? I have noticed my LO (1 week short of 4 mos) is eating much better and a lot of times is hard to burp. Is it just his digestive system is maturing and he doesn't need me burping him as much?

    Thanks for all your help!

    When my dd was a baby her drs told me NOT to burp her because of her AR. When I had my first ds, I did same for him (he also had AR)
    My new ds usually burps himself before I can! LOL

    I think at that age she might not need it. Babies will burp on their own when they need to. Give it a try of not burping her and seeing if she's fussy or gassier. If she is then continue burping her a bit longer. As they learn to sit up and crawl, they don't need to be burped as often. At least thats what my kids dr said.
