What is Burping?

Burping or belching is the passing up of air from the stomach and esophagus out through the mouth.

This air may build up as a result of the type of foods we eat, drinks we consume, and even though some medical conditions.

Air consumed along may build up in the esophagus and get expelled out through the mouth.

When there is excessive air in the stomach , stomach expands and to release the pressure it burps

Small babies or infants may burp after drinking milk as they swallow air during feeding.

Thus burping itself is not a cause of concern but its is rather a symptom to help ease  the stomach from the uneasiness and distention.
