Initial Hiccups in Breastfeeding

Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Aug 23, 2010
Dr. Asha Sharma , gynaecologist in Rockland hospita, says that don’t worry if your newborn experiences initial hiccups in breastfeeding because hiccups in newborns are completely normal. Hiccups may last for a minute or up to an hour, but causes no harm to your baby. To end the bouts of hiccups, just gently rub the back of your baby or give him/her 2-3 drops of water. If your child keeps waking up in the middle of the night, lift him/her up and walk in the room for few minutes. This will soothe the baby and he/she will go to sleep again, but do not keep repeating this or your baby will become habitual of it causing problems later.
