And hic! and hoc! Your baby has regular hiccups. An annoying habit that worries you. Rest assured, this phenomenon due to a spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm is common in babies.

What is hiccup?

  • It is a spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm - the muscle that separates the thorax from the abdomen - after a sudden absorption of an excess of air. This phenomenon is more often observed in a bottle-fed infant than in a breast-fed infant.
  • How does the hiccup work? The glottis contracts, the air does not pass in the trachea and the vocal cords emit this funny "hic" so characteristic. Your baby is seized with spasms that occur in the middle or at the end of his inspiration.
  • Hiccups is a commonplace phenomenon in toddlers. Moreover, in the belly of their mother, most fetuses hiccup, too, evacuating amniotic fluid and not air!
  • A baby can sometimes have a little crisis for half an hour without anyone knowing why or how it appears and then disappears. In fact, it happens to some babies to hiccup during their sleep.
  • This phenomenon is not at all painful, even if the sensation of this small belly that rises up impresses you.
  • EFinally, hiccups do not matter. Besides, did not our grandmothers say: "Baby hiccuping, baby healthy"?
