When and how do I burp my baby and settle tummy pain?
If your baby is suddenly in a lot of pain while breastfeeding or comes off the breast in pain, the baby may need burping or help with a tummy cramp. Babies that are sleeping after a feed do not. Some babies need more burping and others need less. Do what works best. We have found placing the baby against the mothers upper chest and shoulder and massaging the mid-back to be the most helpful treatment for tummy pain.
