To set caregivers up for success, Kristen Carteaux, MSN, RNC-NIC, Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Parkview Regional Medical Center, takes us through different positions and techniques for burping, the recommended duration and frequency, the signals baby might be sending and more, so that you can expel that troublesome air and keep your little one comfortable.
