1 doctor agrees
In brief: Very common
Babies have hiccups a lot in utero, and then can have a lot after! i would not be worried.

In brief: Get used to it
Hiccups are thought to be triggered by an electronic event passing through the babies breathing muscle triggered by rubbing the nearby stomash.
This is common in some infants.Those that do in the womb usually continue during the first weeks/months after birth.It generally stops when the baby grows longer, separating the stomach from the breathing muscle.Frustrating but harmless.
