Belching

Burping; Eructation; Gas - belching

Belching is the act of bringing up air from the stomach.

Baby burping position

To reduce spitting up, burp the baby several times during and after feeding. One technique is to sit the baby upright, with your hand supporting the head. Let the baby lean over slightly, bending at the waist. The upright posture moves air to the top of the stomach, and the forward lean puts a little pressure on the stomach to eject the air, helping the baby to burp.

Digestive system

The esophagus, stomach, large and small intestine, aided by the liver, gallbladder and pancreas convert the nutritive components of food into energy and break down the non-nutritive components into waste to be excreted.
