Do babies fart in the womb?

I love my baby girl but I was wondering if she farts in there from time to time. LOL. I know she gets hiccups and all that stuff but I was wondering about the farting.

  • There is no air in the womb. She's not really digesting anything yet, so there is no opportunity for her body to create it. Babies do not fart or burp in the womb. Hiccups are spasms of the diaphragm muscle, and have nothing to do with air.
