Answer: You can try some other ways to burp ur baby.
Burp ur baby sitting on ur lap-:
Put a cloth bib on your baby or a cloth over your lap to catch any spit-up.
Sit your baby on your lap facing away from you.
Use one hand to support his body, the palm of your hand supporting his chest while your fingers gently support his chin and jaw. (Make sure you're not putting your fingers around his throat.)
Lean your baby slightly forward and gently pat or rub his back with your other hand.
Or Face down across your lap-:
Put a cloth over your lap to catch any spit-up.
Lay your baby face down on your legs so she's lying across your knees, perpendicular to your body.Support her chin and jaw with one hand. Make sure your baby's head isn't lower than the rest of her body so blood doesn't rush to her head.Pat or rub her back with the other hand.
Note: If you don't get a burp after a few minutes, try a different position. If that doesn't work, it's fine to stop – your baby may not need to burp.

my baby girl is of 23 days...
she cries while passing gas...i think she has a gasteric issue..more over she passes loose stool.. sometimes greenish tone...plz suggest.
There are majorly 3 reasons for baby to pass green stool.
First, imbalance in foremilk and hindmilk. When baby takes only foremilk he is likely to pass green stool. For this feed baby for minimum of 20mins each breast. This way he ll get hindmilk.
Second, When baby has any bacterial or viral infection like cold and cough. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. And you can also use mustard garlic ajwain oil to massage his body.
Third, It could be due to stomach infection. In this case get stool test done.
Question: My baby has lot of gas. He gets very uncomfortable lot of times and keeps passing gas. I am not eating any gas producing foods. Baby is 5 weeks old. Any remedies to relieve gas in baby?
Answer: Hi dear,
Naturally babies get air inside by breastfeeding or bottle feeding. So after every feeding burp your baby well.
Give baby tummy time for 2 to 3 mins.
Massage baby's stomach around navel area using coconut oil or mustard oil in clockwise and anti clockwise direction.
It gives relief from gas and helps to move poop also.
Hope this will help you
