Spitting up

My son started spitting up every time we burped him starting around 2.5 months old. We started waiting about 15 minutes to 30 minutes after breastfeeding him before we burped him, and that worked for a while. He was growing so quickly though, and any pressure on his belly would make him spit up what he ate. After some trial and error, we found that the only way to keep him from spitting up his food was to lie him on his side for about 15-30 minutes. Keeping him on his side allowed any gas/air to pass through him and allowed him to keep his food down.
