Hello ladies, just wanna ask about baby hiccups. My 12 days old baby girl gets hiccups like 3 times a day. I really wonder about this and it can take her about 5 minutes to get rid of it everytime and its so loud sometimes. I pity her when she gets this but its seems like she does not mind having it. How could i prevent too many hiccups?

there's nothing you can do- i hated when my dd got them, too, and it was like 4 times every day. as she gets older they seem to happen less. my dd doesnt get them very often now at all, she's 8 months.

I don't think there's anything u can do except to let her do it. Also sometimes excessive hiccuping is a sign of reflux.

I have heard that some people have tryed using gripe water for hiccups.. my lo had hiccups severeal times a day in utereo and then when she was born it continued.. there was nothing we could do for it. SHe is 5 months now and has hiccups every now and then.

It's completely normal and nothing to worry about.. just part of being a baby!

Hi, my ds had hiccups too... he is now 4.5 months.. but when he was a newborn -- he got them several times a day for 15-30min bouts... my ped told me that sucking helped them out -- I would dip his nuk into gripe water -- it did help. Now at 4.5 months, he gets them occasionally. I know it's worrisome but it's completely normal .. their little diaphram is learning how to work!

Yup. It's annoying to for us but don't really bother babies. It's not bad for them, and nothing we can do for them either. It's just a part of their immature digestive systems

Frequent Hiccups are a sign of reflux. You should check online to see teh symptoms, she may have reflux. And symptoms generally start appearing from week 1 -4 and get worse.
