The Feeding Time Blues

I burp ds who is 12 weeks old every 2 ounces. When I go to take the bottle out of his mouth he pitches a fit and gets himself so upset that it breaks my heart. Once I get a burp out of him after a wrestling match and put the bottle back in his mouth he is fine but I am starting to dread feeding him. Anyone else's LO act like this?

Have you tried giving him more than 2oz between burps? I can't remember exactly when, but it was around 2.5-4 mos that my dd required less burping, she was like your ds, GIVE ME MY BOTTLE, screw the burp!

I think I stopped burping dd in the middle of her feed when she was about2-3 months old. Try and let you ds take as much feed as he wants and when he is finished then burp him, see how that goes.

I also knew when my dd needed to be burped because she would spit out the bottle and refuse to eat anymore till she burped.

my dd is almost 14 weeks old, and she doesnt want to burp AT ALL! she will just chug chug chug til the whole bottle is gone, then burp. maybe, like the others have said, just dont burp until your ds fusses, like he has gas.

Yeah, my ds did the same thing so I just stopped burping him until after he was finished his bottle.

At 12 weeks my son went atleast 4ozs before he had to burp then by the time he hit 16 weeks he took the whole bottle.
