The biggest problem with a baby dealing with stomach wind is that they are going to have a hard time eating o sleeping.

When you deprive a baby of sleep and food, you are looking at the perfect recipe for a disastrous night. There is a myth that children can burp themselves, but the truth is that this is not the case in most situations. 

If your child suffers from reflux, you should avoid any position that places pressure on their bellies. You want to make sure that the baby is facing straight ahead instead of facing down. This is very important as it is a perfect position to open the airways.

A good way to perform this exercise is to have your baby sitting on your lap and supporting the head by holding their cheekbones. Now you can take your free hand and start giving the baby gentle pats on the back.

This is the best way to wind a child with reflux because you are going to be avoiding uncomfortable positions that could put pressure on the baby’s belly.  Once you get the hang of this position for winding, you will be able to get I done with relative ease.

At the end of the day, you need to learn to recognize how your child is feeling and if your child is done being burped or if there is still any wind to release. The sooner you learn to recognize the signs that our baby is still, inferable, the better.

Never forget that no matter how young your child is, you are always going to be able to spot specific signs that the baby is dealing with comfort issues.
