In The Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful

HICCUPS recur during the first year after birth, but are not usually a cause for concern. Young children experience hiccups due to tension or strain of the diaphragm and sudden closure of the vocal cords. Hiccups are caused by the rapid closing of vocal cords.

Although HICCUPS can happen to children at any time, there are a few ways you can get rid of any possible problems with hiccups. Many children sleep without being disturbed despite hiccups during sleep.

Here are some tips to help you get started:With the help of which the lives of small children can be saved from hiccups.

(1).Take a deep breath and let the baby belch.

If your baby starts to burp while breastfeeding, take a break and let your baby burp. Burping helps to expel excess gas that can cause hiccups. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, when your baby using a feeder drinks 2 to 3 ounces of milk, then you should belch him. However, if your baby is breastfed, belch the baby before breastfeeding one after the other.

(2). Gently touch the baby’s back.

When the child is hiccuping, gently touch his back.Never hit the baby hard on the back.

(3).Use NIPPLES.

HICCUPS in newborns are not always caused by feeding. So when the baby starts to hiccup, let him suck. This will reduce the tension of the diaphragm and stop the hiccups.

(4). Leave the 🐥 BABY alone.

HICCUPS usually go away on their own. If your child is not bothered by hiccups, you do not need to do anything. However, if the child’s hiccups are not stopping, which is rarely seen, it would be better to consult a doctor as it may be a sign of a serious health problem.

(5).Review baby FEEDER.

The feeder may also be behind the HICCUPS.Some feeders are designed to collect more air than other feeds. If your child has hiccups while drinking the feeder, try using another brand of feeder.


These methods can be used if the duration of hiccups is longer than usual.

Make sure your baby is calm while breastfeeding. This means that parents should not start breastfeeding their baby until after he has lost his appetite and starts crying because this way the baby becomes restless before drinking milk.
Avoid playing with the baby immediately after breastfeeding.
Keep the baby upright for 20 to 30 minutes after breastfeeding.
