It's so normal, babies diaphram isn't quite ready yet.. so hiccups are a sympthom of this, but nothign to worry about. With my son it helped to burp him and pat his lower back moving toward his higher....sort of move the air up so it acn come out, giving him warm drinks would help too, specially camomille tea (ask your Dr. first!!)

Hope it helps!

My son Malachi gets hiccups ALL the time I give a little bit of juice and that usally gets rid of them. That's about all I can get to get rid of them!!

My son is three months and he just now STOPPED getting hiccups every time he eats. I heard that if you don't hold their head up high enough they will get hiccups. Also if he gets air when he eats that will cause them. I'm not sure what caused his though because I tried propping him up and that did nothing...they just stopped.
