I have the hardest time gettin my little boy to burp he does burp after one ounce but the other 2 ounces he does not burp he goes to sleep and I do wake him up to try and get him to burp but he goes right back to sleep. I do use the anti colic bottles that doesn't give them any air like regular bottles but I still try and burp him. Anyone know how to get them to burp?

Some babies don't get enough air in their tummies to burp (I was told at the hospital by thbge LC). If you have tried for more than 10 mins and he doesn't, he won't. Does he cry afterwards? It kindda gets obvious if he has gas or not. My son didn't burp the first couple weeks unless fed with a bottle (Avent... he won't burp with Playtex nursers...). Don't stress, but if you want to try, swaddle him tight before making him burp or instead of patting his back, sit him on your knee and gently "squeeze" his tummy (taught by my obgyn) as if you want to push the bubbles up. But again, a ga__sy baby is easy to notice...

My daughter was hard to burp when she was a newborn. I found that if I laid her flat for maybe 15-20 seconds, then picked her back up and burped her....ta-da!! It might work for you.....
