  • never thought about it till now im supposing they can if the swallow too much fluid to fast and get gas....but then they have that melc um whatever the first stool is called so if they fart then that might come out sooner but usually in most cases comes out after birth got me thinking now lol

  • i dont think so because they are getting any air into their digestive system to make gas.....

  • Yes babies can hiccup, all my babies did, and you sure can feel it too. As for the farts I would hope they do not do this as this action would produce mecoundium Not sure If I spelled that right, but that is the feces the baby is making while in the womb . And if they do do this , its very dangerous and can lead to birth defects .....Hope this info helps.
