How to get rid of baby hiccups?

How to get rid of baby hiccups?

Agree with Dr. F.: I would add that in nearly two decades of pediatrics I have yet to see a baby who is as bothered by the hiccups as the mom is. Usually the mom is worried, and the baby is perfectly fine, hiccuping. A good rule of thumb: if it bothers the baby, it needs to be seen to. If it bothers only the parents, it's probably ok. ...Read more

How to stop infant's hiccups???

You don't: These are thought due to a pulse wave sent through the breathing muscle in late pregnancy and early infancy. Proximity of the stomach to the breathing muscle has been implicated and as growth begins to separate the two, the kid quits having episodes. It bothers you more than the kid, ignore it.It will pass soon enough. ...Read more

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least.. Very nervous?

Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least.. Very nervous?

Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around.The hiccups are unrelated.I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts.C-section is often needed. ...Read more
