- My sister's baby is only 2 weeks old and gets the hiccups at least 4 times a day. How do you cure newborn hiccups?
Hiccups in newborns could be cause by the same few reasons as an adult, such as eating too much, swallowing air while chewing, being anxious or excited. An infant may swallow some air while nursing and that may give raise to hiccups. Hence, it is important to burp the baby after each feeding to get ride of any air in the stomach. In general, hiccups in newborns and babies are common. However, if your baby’s hiccups continue for hours, you should seek advice from your doctor. Some conditions like gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) or a tumor or cyst in the throat may present symptoms like hong-term hiccups. Hiccups usually will go off on its own. You can try soothing your baby by rocking or providing a gentle back rub. Just take note if it is taking unusually long for the hiccup to go away and give your doctor a call if required.Pavin Chopra
