baby hiccups

My 10 day old newborn has the hiccups quite frequently. Is there anything I can do to prevent them?

Re: baby hiccups

  • My son gets them with the same consistency as he did inside the womb. It's just a muscle spasm.

  • I don't think there's a way to prevent them but gripe water can help them once he gets them. I just give my LO a small dose and they stop almost immediately.

    Mine says newborn plus, but it can't hurt to call your pediatrician's office and see what they think.
  • Mothers bliss said 2 weeks in the instructions
  • My pedi said if they had them a lot in utero then it's normal..although still unpleasant for baby!
