Answer: Hi. Many babies will cry, fuss, pull off the breast, etc. if they need to burp. Try to burp between breasts and after a feeding, It's perfectly normal. Give your baby lots of skin-to-skin contact between feeding Try different feeding positions, as your baby may find some positions more comfortable than others. Try offering your breast when your baby is asleep, or very sleepy Hope this helps
