Works for Me Wednesday--Tip for burping a baby

Marc-Adam has been the hardest baby to burp. I can hear the air gurgling around in there, but it just won't come up easily. Until one day, I absent-mindedly (that's not a word, is it?) had him turned a different way while I was trying to burp him. I was patting his chest for a few seconds before I realized my mistake, but before I could turn him around, he let out a huge burp. Ever since then, if I've had a hard time getting him to burp, I gently pat his chest for a few seconds and up it comes. I'm not sure if that will work for every baby, but's it worth a try. If you are still having a hard time getting the burp to come up, lay baby down for a few minutes and then try again.

Head over to Rocks In My Dryer for more tips (probably not involving gas).

Good idea! I'll have to try that with my daughter.

Thanks for the tip! I babysit an infant who sometimes has trouble burping. Next time I'll try this!
