Bouncing after eating it natural activity, that adults can easily handle. Unfortunately for the youngest, it is not so simple, that's why the role of mum or dad is to help the baby release excess gas.

There is a lot you can do before your toddler starts eating, making sure you give milk before the baby gets really hungry. This is not always possible, but reducing or eliminating crying because of hunger avoids air accumulation and trouble releasing gases. It is also important in this respect regular feeding appropriate feeding technique (100% mouth filling with a nipple or tipping the teat so that it is full of milk), and if you use a bottle the use of anti-colic bottles is often helpful.

Some children even need it bouncing several times during feeding, others do not need it at all. It also depends a lot atmosphere during feeding and from that what style of childcare parents choose: often worn, cuddled children usually get rid of excess gas naturally (unnoticed by parents).

In what positions to wait for a burp?

There are several positions in which it is easier for a child to release gases. Each one will be useful a tetr nappy placed under the baby's mouth.
It is worth choosing the arrangement that is most convenient for us.

  • Rest the baby's head on his shoulder. Hold the baby under the buttocks with one hand and pat the back with the other. This is the most popular item chosen for bouncing.
  • Put the child on his lap with his head down. Hold the chest and head with one hand and pat it on the back with the other. The child should be tilted slightly to
