hey all... my baby is 21 days old and earlier she used to burp after bf but since last week she is not burping after bf and used to expel milk after a time.... what to do moms please help...

Feed less n try to make her burp.. don't out her down immediately after feed.. roam a while on ur shoulder.. happens with kids sometimes when they are over fed ..

Burp is merely removal of excess air which is taken in at the time of suckling and swallowing breast milk. Hence sound is not important. Just hold the baby upright for a few minutes after a feed to ensure the removal of the air.

ok...I am trying my best.. thank you Richa and Sonali

My daughter never burped after bf. Doc said hold her upright for approx 15 mins, that should help and it did
