I was told by the PICU/NICU doctors to keep him upright for30 minutes after he eats. It's supposed to help with reflux... and you have to burp your baby... as far as I know they don't typically burp on their own just because they are laying on their stomachs.

Why would you put him on his belly to burp instead of just burping him?

You have to burp your baby. Keep him upright for at least 30 minutes after eating.

Don't. He needs to remain upright for 30 minutes.

This. I set dd on my leg and put a hand on her chest and lean her forward slightly and burp her. She loves it and it burps her and keeps her upright. Then if she spits up I can catch it quicker. If she's on my shoulder sometimes she spits quietly and I don't catch it until its rolling down my chest.



If she falls asleep I recline and lay her on her tummy on my chest and burp her that way she's still on a slight upright angle.

You could try switching formula. Just make sure he's burped well and upright for at least 30 minutes
