How long should a baby sit up after burping?
Babies sometimes spit up when burping, so position a towel or burp cloth under the baby’s mouth on the parent’s lap or shoulder when burping in those positions, or across the baby’s chest when burping sitting up. If a baby has a history of spitting up or reflux, keep them upright for 15 to 30 minutes after feeding.
