Signs a baby needs to burp

A baby may burp when it has swallowed air or food that is too big for its digestive system to handle.

Burping a baby is usually not necessary after four to six months when the digestive system matures and babies learn to regulate their own breathing as they eat. When a baby burps, it makes bubbles of air from its stomach and intestines. These bubbles help draw in more air and settle any excess milk or food in the digestive system.

If babies are gassy, spit up frequently, or have Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), burping should be done more often, such as after every ounce of milk during bottle-feeding or every five minutes during breastfeeding. This will help prevent discomfort and irritation of the esophagus.

If a baby is fidgeting, bringing its legs close to its chest, or making facial expressions when it needs to burp, that may be an indicator of discomfort. It’s important to check a baby’s welfare and respond appropriately if you see any signs of distress while burping a baby.

At what age do I stop burping my baby completely?

Burping your baby is no longer required after four to six months of age. Once this time has passed, the digestive system of the infant should have developed sufficiently for burping to be no longer necessary. At this stage, your baby may be able to roll over and sit up, which may alleviate the need to be burped. Additionally, babies may begin feeding themselves and develop a sense of self-feeding, which may also reduce the need for burping.
