  • its normal. if they bother you offer him some formula (even if he has just eaten a little formula like half an ounce will normally get rid of them) but they don't hurt them and i've heard the ones that hiccup alot before birth are the ones that hiccup alot afterwards, thats been the case with both of mine.

  • It's fine. Unless it actually bothers him, don't worry about it. If it does bother him, try Gripe Water. I knew mine hated the hiccups before she was even born.

  • My 2 week old gets hiccups at least that many times per day. It's totally normal - it made me nervous the first few times she did it, but I even checked with the doctor and he said it's totally normal. I should've know she would hiccup a lot - she did in constantly when she was in my belly!
