The Charleston

My 3-month old hates burping. Personally, I don't see any downside to a good burp, but something in his little unformed synapses tells him, "don't do it, it's a trick".

The process works like this: I take out his bottle and attempt to sit him up, he stiffens his back and widens his eyes, then he starts kicking his legs uncontrollably and raises his arms up in horror, finally ending with some little jazz-fingers action. If he were wearing a smoking jacket, I'd swear it was The Charleston.
