Baby hiccups

My baby always had hiccups in the womb and now that she's born she has them still, after most feeds. Is there anything I can do? Is this common? Are they bad for her? Thanks.

DS hiccuped several times a day in the womb - he's 9mo now and still has them every couple of days. They don't seem to bother him at all but I guess he's used to them by now!

Perfectly normal. My dd had them after almost every feed for the first 6 weeks or so. Now she is 14 weeks we only get them occasionally. Mentioned it to a hv and she said it wasn't anything to worry about.

My dd has hiccups a lot, but I find if I let her feed again it settles them down.

My LO used to get hiccups a lot, it's probably every day/other day now rather than few times a day. Never bothered her but used to annoy me on occasion as it would keep her awake. Agree that a quick feed usually sorted em out smile

Also agree quick feed sorts it.
