Baby Hiccups After Every Feeding
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Hiccuping is very normal for newborns and you can expect the frequency to decrease by the time they are a couple months old. Generally the hiccups do not bother your baby and they are not dangerous or causing any damage to your baby. Sometimes feeding or burping your baby can help them go away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No known association: Over three decades I have never seen any association between the two. I have had an infant with 5 wraps around the neck & no hiccups & hundreds with no wrap & hiccups.

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

6w baby girl with spit up after changing her formula from soy to Sensitive. Also, although always, lots of hiccups after her feedings.
Probably normal: Changes of formula often results in some GI manifestations, until the baby gets used to the new formula. Just make sure you are mixing the formula correctly, and there are no other symptoms like fever, rashes, continuous vomiting or weight loss.Your pediatrician can help determine if there is any milk allergy, for which she would need to be on a special formula. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 8 days old baby gets lots of hiccups after feedings/burping. Also some spit up. Issues with BFing, supplementing with formula/pumping. cause?
Benign variation: Hiccups have been explained as a spontaneous nerve discharge triggering the breathing muscle to tighten in a cycle like a heart beat. Some have suggested the stomach of the newborn rubs the diaphram and triggers the pattern, and that with age the stomach moves away lessening the problem. The most active cases have them before birth. I know of no treatment with any value. ...Read more

I am 32 weeks my baby be have hiccups every 3 hours.. And when she do she start jumping and kicking crazy in there.. What's wrong?
Nothing wrong: Your baby is fine. This is totally normal behavior at 32 weeks. Hiccups happen when the stomach tickles the unerside of the diapragm in the baby. Now that she is starting to swallow and practicing that for when she is born, her stomach size can increase, and when it does and tickles the undersie of the diaphragm, she hiccups. It's all good. As she grows, you feel more kick and move! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm pregnant and my baby gets hiccups 2 4 times every day is there something wrong? Heart rate has always been good on the doppler and he moves alot.
Hiccups NORMALreflex: Newborns are born with many reflexes (involuntary muscle actions/contractions) that may help with survival. One example is a rooting reflex: touch a baby's cheek, he/she will turn it's head & make sucking movements--as if to 'root out a nipple'. Hiccups are a reflex of the diaphragm (breathing muscle) preparing to do it job: breathing. This is a normal phenomenon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
