How can I prevent my 2-week-old from getting hiccups after every meal?


Hiccups are very common, especially in the first few months of life, and they usually bother parents more than babies. To my knowledge, there is no one way to prevent hiccups. You are doing the right thing by trying to burp her. You might try burping her even more often than you do to see if that helps. Also, try changing positions slightly when you feed her, and try feeding her more slowly.

Spitting up is also very common, and the amount of fluid that comes out usually looks larger than it is. She'll be weighed at her next checkup, and that's the best way to tell if she's spitting up too much. If she's gaining weight well, then she's keeping enough milk down. Spitting up is a nuisance, but most often it's not a physical problem, especially if she seems content afterward. If she is fussy with every feeding or when she spits up, or if you are worried about her weight gain, then be sure to check with your health care provider.
