My little girl always falls asleep without burping and it hasn't been a problem.

my son often falls asleep with out burping. when this happens usually i'll lay him on his side because sometimes he'll start spitting up and i don't want him to choke on it. However, i did notice that when he doesn't burp, he'll get gassy

I don't burp my little one because its useless....she NEVER burps if I try to burp her, and I've tried everything. So I gave up. She falls asleep nearly after ever feed too. So I give her mylocon to help with gas, and she really doesnt have much of a problem with gas anymore. She burps on her own pretty consistently, but not because of any one cause. She will burp during tummy time, sometimes when she's sleeping, or I lay her down to sleep. Sometimes when I pick her up, but mostly not at all. I wouldn't worry about it, if you are...you can use mylocon, it helps dissolve gas bubbles in their bellies. I get it at walmart, its $6 or so.

the midwives at hospital always told me that a baby cant choke on their own sick as they automatically turn their heads to the side

so your little girl should be ok

This is exactly what I do. I get my little finger and thumb under the armpits with my forefinger supporting his jaw and either pat, rub or massage upwards.

Both my kids fell asleep sometimes after eating without burping. They just got hiccups. No big deal.

Burp her anyways or he will wake up not long after he falls asleep possibly with a tummy ache. Most babies wont wake up when you continue to burp them.
