Q:

there are times when my baby burps immidiately after feed. do i have to still keep her in the upright position for few more minutes?



BabyChakra

Just for a bit to ensure that the baby is fine.

Priya

Yes. Its always better to keep baby upright

Sonali Shivlani

Burp sound is not important. It is advisable to hold baby in an upright position for two reasons, one for the air to exit which is the burp and the other for the milk to settle in the stomach. The milk will move towards gravity and hence baby has to be held upright for a few minutes after a feed.

Kavita Mittal

yes... more Dan 5 minutes.... surely

Arwa Hozefa
