My baby used to hiccup after every feed but now much better after we change to pigeon milk bottle and also try not to let her finish the milk till the end. I left about one mouth of milk.

It is normal as long as it doesn't last for more than an hr https://www.babycentre.co.uk/x1048439/how-can-i-get-rid-of-my-newborn-babys-hiccups

Yup its normal. Sometimes could be due to them sucking in air.. As they mature, they won’t hiccup as often as after every feed.

my baby usually spit up, hiccup then pass motion, so when she hiccups I know she will or have passed motion.

Yes, I asked PD before. Their lungs are still developing so it's normal for them to hiccup.

Normal. Sometime let baby cry abit to get rid of the hiccup. It will reduce as they grow

It’s normal, but do make sure you help them burp after every feed to prevent colic.

Very normal. Usually goes away when baby continues to suckle while breastfeeding

Yes, it’s normal. You can prevent it by burping your child after every feed
