Brief Answer:
Burping for 10 minutes should be done

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome to HCM. Can understand your concerns.

Sometimes, baby may vomit some amount of milk after feeding, this is a normal thing. The baby keep milk in mouth which results in vomiting.

Burping should be done for at least 10 minutes. This will help.

If vomiting still persist then start Domstal baby drop 5 drops three times a day for 2 days.

Avoid feeding baby in lying down position. Keep an angle of atleast 30 degrees.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
