Answer: Hello dear. Overfeeding is a common cause ofhiccups. If the stomach distends too fast or becomes too full, this can trigger. When breastfeeding, try slowing down feedings, and stop and burp your baby as you switch from one breast to the other. Here are a few tips to reduce the baby's hiccups. Taking a break from a feeding to burp your baby may help get rid of the hiccups, since burping can get rid of excess gas that may be causing the hiccups. Use a pacifier. Infant hiccups don't always start from a feeding. Let them stop on their own. Hold your baby upright for up to 20 minutes after each feed. Try giving your baby smaller but more frequent feeds. Take care.
