Ok.. so your definition of ‘burpees’ may differ from mine..
I don’t even really know what a burpee is. I just hear that word a lot from my fit friends. I know they are hard. I know my fit friends have a love/hate relationship with them.
But that’s not what I’m here to talk about..
My burpees? Burping a newborn, of course!
I have to be honest here. Two kids into this parenting thing, and I still don’t know how to burp a baby. Yes, I know the techniques. Over the shoulder, pat the back. Sit the baby down, lean them forward with your hand supporting her head, pat the back..
Still.. I’m probably 40% successful.
I can pat, pat, pat until I feel like I’m going to pat her lungs out.. no burps.
However, those nurses in the recovery room can burp those babies like no other. Several times, the nurse would come in, pick up little K, pat her once, maybe twice, and K would just belch.
They can explain it to me over and over again, I just don’t have that burping magic.
Any burping tips to share?
