Have you ever felt gassy?
Had some indigestion perhaps?
Need to burp or fart, but don’t know how?
Follow these steps to find the secret to calm and confident adulting:
Step 1: Pick up baby (any baby within arms reach, really)
Step 2: Prop baby up with one hand, and cup the other imagining yourself as a 5 year old being an escavator.
Step 3: Hit the baby, gently, with your cupped hand, using consistent repeated motions.
Note: it is at this point where you will find relief from your symptoms. You will either burp, belch or fart.
Note 2: baby will need another 30mins to achieve what you have done.
Step 4: Repeat as necessary.
