I have been having trouble being successful at burping my 6 day old daughter. She always ends up spitting up a little while afterwards, and I'm afraid to lay her down in fear of her choking or spitting up without me knowing. Has anyone experienced this and able to give any suggestions?

In my experience and i have 10 children your baby will always vomit after the bottle unless you get a burp out of her as soon as she or he is finished with it! Its the burp that stops the vomit. Sometimes it can take 4 to 5 minutes to get a vaby to burp. It could also be that your bany may be sensative and might do better with a soy formula but you should talk to your pediatrician before switching formulas cause that can be rough on a babies system also. Try laying your baby tummy side down across your lap and pat pat pat till you get that joyous burp!! Good luck!
