  • Most of the time it is normal, but it could also be a sign of reflux. If your little one shows other symptoms of reflux (spitting up a bunch, fussy when eating, fussy when burping) and the hiccups don't go away, you may want to check with your pediatrician. good luck!

  • my ten month old DD has been hiccuping since she was in the womb. she is a frequent hiccupper. i asked her gastro doc and she wasn't concerned about it.

  • My little one had the hicups while she was in the womb, and I started getting consernced about it then, the dr. said its nothing to worry about though, just to enjoy the ride. that should have given me a heads up on what was to come. She has had the hicups since day one. She gets them for the most part when she eats, and we were concerened to feed her when she hicuped, but it didn't seem to hurt her. We tried to slow down how fast she eats, but it doesn't seem to do anything. She's now 7 weeks old, and we just deal with them. I try to rock her in hopes it settles her down, may be that will help. But for the most part, we just live with them. it doesn't seem to hurt her.
