It's Normal: Most babies get hiccups frequently in the first 2-3 months, especially after eating. They usually bother the parents much more than the child, and no treatment is required. However, if you feel your baby is uncomfortable, and you can get him to latch on to the breast or bottle, a few more swallows of milk usually helps them resolve.
