Burping the Baby

Why is my baby crying, is she hungry

Most of the time that the baby is crying, it is because of hunger.  Some parents begin to recognize the cry of hunger at a very early age.  It has been observed that the feeling of a full stomach gives a baby the most comfort. - not the act of feeding, swallowing or being held.  However, it is important that you should burp the baby (take out excess air) after every feed, because the air trapped in her system may cause her a lot of discomfort.  Another possible explanation for your baby's discomfort may lie in her diet.  Occasionally, allergy or sensitivity to something in the formula or breast milk may lead to crying, but this is usually accompanied by other symptoms. 

How do I burp my baby

Babies often feel uncomfortable because they have swallowed air. Burp the baby regularly during feeds in order to expel swallowed air. Applying light pressure to the baby's abdomen (by laying her across your lap, tummy down, or upright against your shoulder) while patting or rubbing her back has also been known to be effective.  When you are breastfeeding your baby, you can hold the baby against your shoulder for 30 seconds to one minute before offering her the second breast.

How can I prevent my baby from swallowing air

Parents can take a few precautionary measures to prevent the baby from swallowing air. Babies will swallow less air if you keep them upright as much as possible during feeding and burping. The right-size teat hole on a bottle will also reduce air intake. If you are breastfeeding the baby, you should position them in a semi-upright position.
