My 3 1/2 month old sometimes burps himself. He's a big spitter upper in general. At night, being the big eater that he is, he wakes up every 2 to 6 hours to feed -- depending on the night. I'm often torn as to whether to pick him up and burp him once he's off the nipple before going back to bed. I've always done it, because it seems like he's gassy if I don't. But perhaps this isn't even the case any longer. Often it wakes him up more than if I'd just let him lay. I heard other cultures don't even burp their baby. What do other people do?
