    Default meaning

    hi

    Dear teacher

    What is it called in American English (to gently hit or rub a baby's back to make it burp)? I mean a verb which means that, Of course in Bre it is "to wind" (Am I right?)

    Yours truly,

    In America we call that burping the baby. In a case like this, to burp can be a transitive verb.
