HICCUPH: Sudden irritation of diaphragm is the main cause of hiccuph. In your baby the cause can be from swallowed air, feeding too fast, too much intake in each feed or gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Feed every 3 hours in upright position before s/he becomes too hungry, so that baby doesn't eat too fast, burp up in the middle and after feeding, use tummy time. Talk to the pediatrician in next visit.

Hiccups are normal: Many parents discover their babies have frequent hiccups. Hiccups are caused by a sudden spasm of the diaphragm. No one knows why this occurs, but in infants it likely happens more often because their neurological pathways are immature. It gets better with time. Older people try many things to get rid of hiccups but there is no treatment for infants. Most infants don't seem upset by hiccups.
