  • Burping around 3 to 4 times after a meal is considered as normal. It happens because while eating food, we swallow some air also. This air comes back as a burp.
    You have mentioned that you are facing this problem after entering into motherhood, so I guess the probable reason would be your eating habits.
    You can follow the bel mentioned points to avoid excessive burping-
    1. Eat food slowly. If we faster, we swallow more air which may result in excessive burping.
    2. Avoid carbonated drinks as carbonated drinks contain air bubbles and cause burping.
    3. If you have a smoking habit, try to avoid that.
    4. Drink water after meal. It helps to settle down food. If you are not having a habit of drinking after immediately after the meal, you can take a few sips.
    5. Having a small baby, it is difficult to get time for yourself. But try to manage some time to walk or exercise. This will help you to boost your digestion and metabolism.

    Take normal homemade food and adopt a habit of drinking mild hot water at least after the meal.

    Even after following all these points, if you don't feel relaxed, then it is better to consult a doctor for the same.

  • Burping or belching is not a serious medical condition but is inconvenient and embarrassing. It is a reflex of the our digestive system and could be associated with indigestion or dyspepsia. There are many ways suggested to reduce the burping though it can not be removed at all.

    The main cautions one has to keep is take the food slowly and not gulp it down. In our Ayurveda system it is strongly suggested to chew the food completely before swallowing it down the food pipe. One has to take less spicy and less hot food as they are the catalyst to create burps. It is generally seen that women get the stomach slightly inflated after the cesarian surgery and due to the extra volume the upward thrust on the alimentary canal increases producing the burps. With proper life style and food habits it is possible to contain the frequency of these burps.

    Another important thing is one has to take sufficient soups and other liquid diets and avoid dry swallowing. It is the trapped air in between the dry swallowing that create problem after taking the food. It will be a good idea to take little water while eating intermittently. If the burping is associated with acidity and such ailments of stomach like malfunctioning of the oneway biological valve between the food pipe and stomach then it will be advisable to consult a doctor for the same. Light exercises like walking are advised to the women after the delivery for bringing the body back to shape. That is very essential and will also help in reducing the excessive burping.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • Burping is not a very serious problem. There are many reasons for this problem.
    1. Indigestion
    2..Dyspepsia
    3, Consuming more carbonated beverages, beans, and similar foods.
    4. Taking more dairy products than one can tolerate
    5. inflammatory bowel disease
    6. if you have undergone any surgery recently and after that, if the problem started, burping may be due to a blockage in the intestine.
    Among the above, if this is due to the reason 6 mentioned above you have to contact the doctor and get checked by him.
    Some home remedies for the above problem.
    1, Take a small quantity of Rasam or soup before you take your food.
    2. Eat slowly, chew more keeping the mouth closed.
    3, Have small bites only.
    4. Don't go for chewing gums and carbonated drinks.
    5. Don't drink water while eating. Drink plenty of water after 10 or 15 minutes of eating
    6. Don't consume more products which will have lactose in high quantities.
    7. It is better not to consume alcohol or tobacco.
    But I suggest you go to the doctor first and get the checkup done and proceed as per the advice of the doctor.

  • Burping is attributed to the improper functioning of the movement of food and air in the alimentary canal. It is worsened when the person is suffering from acidity. The gastroesophageal sphincter (ring of muscle) at the joint of food pipe (esophagus) and stomach acts as a valve that allows food into the stomach but not back up into the esophagus. Sometimes this valve fails or malfunctions and stomach acid enters the oesophagus and this conditions generates acid feeling in the mouth. Burping can be there in absence of this acidity problem.

    Excessive burping is a condition in which doctors advice is to be sought for remedial measures. In moderate burping a change in life style and controlling food habits will generally bring improvement. Eating fast, drink too quickly, drink soda or carbonated beverages, breathe rapidly and laughing are some of the reasons which trigger burping. Some natural and home remedies for burping include - light walking after taking food, Chew fennel seeds after the meals, drink ginger tea after eating, sip on chamomile tea etc. Lying on one side in knee to chest position sometimes helps as it relieves the gas.

    People having burping conditions should cut down or avoid the foods like lentils, bananas, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, onions, sugar, tomatoes, citrus, alcohol etc.

    There are some Homeopathic preparations which help in reducing burping. These are Lycopodium, Carbo vegetabilis, Nux vomica, Natrum carbonic, Pulsatilla etc. One has to consult a Homeopathic practitioner for the exact preparation and its dose as depending on many symptoms, these preparations and their doses are advised by them.
