Pls advise.

Very normal. All babies do that . Don't worry. Are Hiccups In New Borns Normal?

This is normal. Burp the baby after each feed. Keep the baby's head elevated while feeding. Also don't over feed....

Yes normal. I usually feed her when hiccups and it will stop.

Totally. this will happen with a newborn.; Pat gently during hiccups on her back.; Burp after feeds too.
