Hiccups??

My 2 week old son gets the hiccups almost everytime we set him down if you dont hold him up right for at least 20 minutes after he eats. We always burp him and get a good burp or two each time. Does anyone else have this happen to their baby?

  • yep. It;s because a full tummy is putting pressure on the diaphram. It's a sign of a full and healty baby.

  • My son hiccups at least once a day. I usually give him some more milk and they go away. He got them often while still in the womb too.
