How long should burping of babies be done following a feed?

Many parents are concerned if their child don’t burp after gentle tapping of their baby’s back.

Babies might not always burp after feeds, however the act of burping (i.e. Gentle tapping of the baby in upright position) should continue for minimum 20-30 minutes.

It’s wise to continue burping for 20-30 minutes even if the baby burps with in 5 or 10 minutes of burping, because the upright position of the baby after feed is important.
