Do you burp a sleeping baby?


As the title says really... if your baby falls asleep while feeding, do you wake your babies up to burp them? I sometimes manage to get baby off to sleep in the late evening/night or early morning by lying in bed feeding her, but then when I go to sit her up and burp her she always wakes up

How is it that when we go out anywhere my baby will sleep through absolutely anything, car horns, supermarket chaos etc, but as soon as we walk in the front door she is the lightest sleeper ever! lol!

Oh and I am EBF. Thanks

Hi i always did/do but it didnt wake them up.
breastfed babies seem less windy than formula fed ones though, so your Lo might not have much wind.

I do during the day, even if he has fallen asleep, but not during the night. If he falls asleep eating at night, I try whatver I can to keep him asleep!

No way! It would definitely wake her up. I never have done and shes always been fine and never wakes up from naps or bedtime in pain or anything...Funnily enough she seems more windy/crying/spitting up when i DO burp her during the day when she doesnt fall asleep after feeding.

My LO is EBF too.

I never did while he was sleeping. At first I would slightly pat his back pretending that it even did anything.

I put them on my shoulder and let them sleep there for 20 mins. Normally brings a burp or two up.

Nowadays I don't really bother at all, but when we were bed sharing I rolled him onto his side and patted his back a little while he was laying down. It used to jiggle anything that was stuck, but wasn't enough to wake him up x

i don't, it would def wake him up. if i feel he's particularly windy i will hold him upright and quite firmly for a little while and that will sometimes bring up a burp.

I would leave her sleeping. It would wake her if she got uncomfortable

I sometimes did but mostly just let her sleep if it was at night as wind never bothered her in the night, just in the day. If your LO seems fine without then I would just let them sleep
