Re: Burping question
I had the hardest time getting Nora to burp, too. Some of the things I tried were:
- laying her on her back and bicycling her legs (this was more for pooting)
- resting her ribs on my collarbone so my shoulder put pressure on her tummy and patting her prett hard
- laying her across my legs with her head on one thigh and her tummy on the other, then bounce the tummy leg really quickly (my dad did this really well)
- letting her bounce in one of those doorway jumparoo thingies
It does get easier as they get older and their digestive system matures. Plus once they start moving around more, that moves the gas through as well. I think Nora was about 3 months before she stopped fussing 20 mins after every feed, so if your lo is anything like she was you're almost there!!
