get my husband to do it  for both our sons all he has to do it pick them up  his  hands must be that much larger that is lightly squeezes the burp out with my first though I would sit him facing me and  sort of twist his body  from side to side  and the burp would come out  ..  my son that is 4 weeks now is just random something different  every time  and his burps are awesome sounding like a grown man !!!!

I found often just stretching and sitting up right is enough to get them to bring up the wind.. I used to hate it when i would take my little ones to the health nurse and say that bubs was having trouble burping. She would hold them once rub once and out would come a burp... They alwayse made a fool of

Quoting Crystal:

Watch the video about half way down the page. LOL its hilarious but watch what she does and try it. we have happy grunting babies but this helps with the gas pains. it helps my little guy getting it out both ends.

I totally loved this video.

For a while (this past week actually) I couldn't do the over the shoulder burp because I had sun poisoning on my chest so I'd sit him up cradling his face with one hand and patting his back with the other. after about 5 minutes of this I'd pick him and the adjustment would release the gas/burp.

my son has the same issue he's 4 weeks old and i have to lay him flat for only a moment then burp him... it works everytime!

Burp more frequently, also, my daughter had a lot of gas and after a feeding I would put her in her bouncy seat that had a vibrating option. The gentle vibrating helped get the excess gas out.

I agree with Sarah if you just adjust the way you are feeding toby i am pretty sure the will help with his breathing . I use to work with infants for three years and i've seen many cases.Hope that works.

I know this might sound strange but hold under his chin and the back of the head and rotate him in circles while he's sitting on your knee. Then sit him up striaght with your hand flat on his stomach and push in gently while rubbing his back. It work for my daughter she had colic for months
