There's a lot to learn when you become a parent, but one of the most useful things you can know in those early weeks is how to burp a baby properly.
Most babies need to burp between three and eight times with each feed (breast or bottle) and if they don't bring up all of their wind their tummies become tight and uncomfortable, which can cause them to become unsettled and grizzly; they find it difficult to sleep, as well as difficult to feed, says baby whisperer Sharlene Poole.
(Try lying down flat straight after you've had a large drink of water, and you'll see what we mean.)
In this video Poole shows us her own tried-and-trusted winding technique, which she developed over her 20-plus year career caring for babies.
She demonstrates the technique on her own new baby, George.
Stay tuned, because at the end of her demonstration she talks more about the science behind bringing your baby's wind up.
