Thanks for your query,
Belching is expelling gas out of stomach through mouth and it usually cause is distended stomach through swallowed air.
i advise you to avoid gas forming foods ,tell her to eat slowly.
In case her problem persist i advise you to take her to pediatric gastroentrologist.
Your child will be fine,
