Keeping Your Baby Free of Excess Air will Make Him More Playful and Active
Along with changing diapers, mastering the swaddle, and figuring out how to get your wiggly newborn into a romper, one of the first new parent skills you'll get lots of practice at is BURPING.
An important part of feeding a baby is burping. The air that your baby takes in during every feed can interfere with your little one’s digestion, make him feel uneasy, and set up a stage for more problems inside the stomach. Burping helps to get rid of some of the air that babies tend to swallow during feeding. Not being burped often and swallowing too much air can make a baby spit up, or seem cranky or gassy. So, pick up your baby and burp well to help your little one’s system be free of excess air. This will help to aid digestion in your baby and keep stomach troubles at bay.
Some mothers complain that their babies can’t sleep through the night and would wake up too often. Well, look for the signs in your baby that cause sleep disruption. If you see that your baby wakes up and feels better once you make him sit, chances are that the air inside the stomach was interfering with good sleep. Pick your baby up and try giving a burp before you offer a feed. Remember offering a feed without clearing the air inside can lead to a choking threat. Once you put your baby on the shoulder and pat his back, see if he feels good.
When burping your baby, repeated gentle patting on your baby's back should do the trick. Cup your hand while patting, this is gentler on the baby than a flat palm. To prevent messy cleanups when your baby spits up or has a "wet burp," you might want to place a towel or bib under your baby's chin or on your shoulder. Here’s where this BURPING Cloth comes in handy. Be sure to have this BURPING CLOTH TOWEL by your baby's mouth to catch any spit-up.
Baby burp cloths may not be an exciting purchase, but you might just be surprised by how invaluable they can be!
Not only will you use them for what seems like a million times a day to wipe babies sick and drool, but they can also prove useful for other things too. Once they’ve exceeded their use as a spit-up cloth, they can be reused in a great number of ways.
Maximize the BENEFITS of these Baby Burping Cloth Towels… Learn these AWESOME Inventive Uses of these Towels
- Towels - As burp cloths are designed to be ultra-absorbent, it’s unsurprising they make excellent towels. Now, obviously you’re not going to be able to use them to towel yourself off after a shower, but they could be used for drying baby, or even drying your hands.
- Soothing Diaper Rash Cloth - Diaper rashes are pretty common, and they can be really uncomfortable for your little one. Standard wipes can actually sting, so swapping them for an old, damp burp cloth could be much nicer for baby.
- Cleaning - Whether it’s wiping down surfaces, cleaning up spills, or polishing – they can be used to clean the entire house. What’s more, these are totally re-usable. Just stick them in the wash to get them clean again.
- An alternative to Diapers - It’s quite common for parents to use their old or spare burp cloths as diapers. They’re not far off the same design as cloth diapers, so using them as an alternative can be cost-effective and convenient. They’re guaranteed to be gentle on baby’s skin, but you will need to wash them frequently.
- Place Mats - Once your little one reaches that dreaded toddler- stage, you’ll quickly discover mealtimes can get extremely messy! Using the burp cloths as placemats can help to control spills. You could also use the burp cloth as a bib.
- Wiping Runny Noses - Your baby may have stopped drooling a lot, especially after they’ve finished teething, but you can bet their nose hasn’t stopped! Runny noses are really common in babies and toddlers and it can prove surprisingly expensive to keep buying and using wipes or tissues. The absorbent nature of burp cloths makes them awesome for runny noses.
- Changing Pad - When it comes to changing baby on-the-go, it can be pretty stressful. You usually need to rely upon those disposable changing pads sold in local stores. While these are pretty absorbent and extremely useful, it can prove costly if you’re out with baby quite a lot. Burp cloths can prove to be an excellent alternative.
- Favorite Comforter - All babies have their own personal favorite when it comes to comforters. But what if their favorite blanket or toy isn’t available? Burp cloths can prove surprisingly great at comforting your little one temporarily.
- Washcloths - Due to their size and absorbency, burp cloths can make excellent washcloths. Whether it’s for yourself, or baby, they can be used time and time again.
- Pet Cleanup Towel - If you’ve got pets, old used burp cloths can also be great at cleaning up their mess too. You can place them under food and water bowls to catch any potential spillage. Use them to wipe away mucky pawprints and potentially clean up hair into a pile ready to be picked up.
