Question: 37 weeks pregnant .baby is taking hiccups daily.is it normal
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help.
A baby in the womb getting the hiccups is perfectly normal. In fact, no movement at all would be more cause for concern. Hiccups from the baby means its central nervous system is well-developed and sending the right messages to the brain. Your baby's hiccups will feel like a series of little rhythmic or jerky movements. It's a great feeling and all the best.
Question: My baby is getting hiccups after every feed. Is it ok ?
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.
Question: My baby is 1 week getting hiccups often is it ok? Normal
Answer: Hi, Hiccups are normal in new born, as per my experience I can give some suggestion
Feed your baby small quantities over a longer period of time.
Hold your baby in a vertical position while breast/bottle feeding.
If your baby is old enough to sit, then you can bottle feed him in sitting position.
Sit behind him to support his back.
Feeding while sitting will ensure that gravity plays its part in pulling down just the food and not the air.
Listen to the sound he makes while feeding. If he is making too much slurping noise, then he is probably ingesting a lot of air.
Regularly clean and wash your baby’s bottle to prevent the build-up of milk solids on the nipple.
Break your feeding with mini-burping sessions.
