My son is almost 6 weeks and he takes forever to burp. I am kind of concerned. He will eat 6 oz at a time with no burp in between. Is that okay? I know you are supposed to burp them frequently, and I try. He just will not burp.... Should I be concerned? I am a first time mommy. =-D Thank you.

My child health nurse told me if baby can drink and was happy afterwards then dont stress about burping them. No point spending an hour trying to burp bub when he or she could be resting and so could you.

My son wasnt a big burper,but he did it no problem for his dad...my friend also showed me a trick,by lightly pushing on the spine,and moving upward.she claims it brings the gas up,i thought she was nuts ,but it did help me to burp him doing that! but yeah if he isnt in pain,or bad reflux i wouldnt overly worry.

My son NEVER burped. I really did not even have to do it. He was a weird one though.

Not all babies are big "burpers" and I think, unless he shows signs of pain from trapped wind I wouldn't worry about it. Perhaps he loses it all in the nappy area instead - my daughter did :-)
