So my 7 week old is a great burper and spits up quite a bit - so at night after his first long stretch of sleep he wakes up very hungry, eats a lot and pretty much immediately falls asleep. when i put him on my shoulder or sit him up to burp him he doesn't wake up, and even if he does a momentarily he doesn't burp. the thing is when i put him back to sleep, he is up within one hour, fussy and can't go back to sleep. when that happens i pick him back up and sometimes he'll burp then, but the rest of morning until we all get up he is only sleeping about an hour at a time.
question is: how can i burp my sleeping baby without waking him up, and any ideas to help him sleep soundly for the rest of the night? thanks everyone!
