hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
generally nurses in NICU and infant area are well trained to give feeding and burp properly.
reflux is common in newborn for some time no need to worry about it.
it is good that your giving your child feeding now , your taking extra care to feed him , that is very good for the child.
give exclusive breast feeding till 6 months of age, and vaccination according to schedule.
