Upright!

Ever since we brought Monroe home, well, in the hospital too, we have done the "sitting him down and holding his chin, head and burping" ..we found he was too tiny for over the shoulder and we could never be sure to hear a burp.. the sitting him down really works for us and he typically burps right away! A nurse also showed us to SLOWLY rock them backwards and then upright again if they haven't burped to get things moving :) It works!
