 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My baby boy is healthy, but gets the hiccups around 4-5 times a day, even if he has not been fed anything. The hiccups are loud, and very severe. He shakes everytime he hiccups!

Deepen (Mumbai, India)

A: Hiccups are a normal phenomenon in newborn children. Your child will stop hiccupping by the time he is a month old. Don't worry.

Q: My son hiccups a lot. Why does he do this? Also, I feel as if he is not getting enough breastmilk.

Zeenat (Dubai, UAE)

A: Hiccups are a normal phenomenon with small babies, so don't worry. There are only 2 ways of finding out whether you are getting enough breastmilk. If the baby is urinating more than 6 times a day and if she is gaining adequate weight, she is getting enough breastmilk.
