Infants will need special attention, especially when it comes to their eating habits. You have to keep in mind that their digestive system, as well as their entire body, is still developing for many months after they are born.
So, they might naturally need some help to assimilate the food and digest it.
You might wonder if you need to burp your baby if you are nursing them or this is not such an important aspect. With so many split opinions, the confusion is justified!
If you don’t burp your baby after they eat, they might feel uncomfortable and develop symptoms such as bloating, gas and even tummy aches. You might even be able to feed them the rest of the bottle if you give them a burping break because there will be more space for food in their tummy.
If you are wondering at what age you might not need to burp your baby, you will be glad to know that most babies don’t need burped after four months. However, some will still need burping sessions until they reach 6 months of age. It also depends if you gave birth prematurely as premies might need to be burped longer than gull term babies.
