Why do babies have hiccups?

Most often occurs after breastfeeding or drinking, when the baby inhales, but the epiglottis closes at the same time. Then the inhaled air bounces against the resistance and so the hiccup is created. By the way, this reflex prevents the baby from getting breast milk into the lungs. So the hiccups are merely a protective mechanism.

The hiccup as a protective mechanism from the womb

In the first week of pregnancy, some babies start exercising, that is, the diaphragm, rib and neck muscles are contracted and the lungs are expanded. But don't worry, the unborn baby will not choke on the amniotic fluid, because the larynx is closed.

When should you go to the doctor for hiccups?
