    Your baby gets hiccups all the time: What you need to know

    Babies have hiccups as their diaphragm and muscles are still developing and have not acquired the necessary control to be firm. Your baby is actually quite used to hiccupping as he has experienced them even as a little peach in your womb. You will notice your baby get hiccups after feeding and it is all the more likely when he suffers from reflux.
