Is It Normal To Feel My Baby Hiccuping In The Womb
Quite common: Some have speculated that the close position of the babies stomach to the diaphragm causes a rubbing that triggers the hiccups.This is common & generally continues on through the first months after birth.

But later in the second trimester, those reassuring kicks will become stronger and more regular. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby is 4 months old and likes to sit in her walker.She is now pushing it around. Is that bad will it mess up the development of her legs.
If she's in It <10%: Of her waking hours, was full-term & has typical development, probably not. You have to baby-proof your house sooner- especially re: dangling cords to hot appliances, stairs & open doors & monitor her closely. Walkers abduct the hips, not a natural position for walking.

My baby is 4 months old and moves a lot when sleeping, is this normal and if so when will it stop?
Don't expect it: Random movement of the arms and legs in both the waking and sleeping periods are expression of a normal nervous system.The brain sends out random messages to the motor nerves to flex or extend to preserve muscle mass and tone.Without these events, the muscles would weaken like yours would if you were placed in a cast or splint. ...Read more
