  • I wait till they are gone so they don't choke

  • I gave all my babies about an ounce of water to get rid of the hiccups! that always seemed to help the hiccups go away so they could eat cause i tried feeding with them and it gives them big bubbles and makes the burping process longer

  • they wont choke! lol thats funny, anyways yeah feeding the baby helps them regulate their breathing again so the hiccups stop usually.hiccups happen when a pocket of air is trapped between the lungs and the diaphram so the rthym of feeding stops it sometimes.
