Are newborn baby hiccups normal?

About 2 weeks ago, my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Our babyís quite healthy. He eats and sleeps well but one thing thatís been bothering me about him is his hiccups. He hiccups a lot especially when heís not able to burp. Ever since he was inside the womb, he would hiccup there as well. My wife, on the other hand, is so chill about it. Then again, Shenyang women are really calm and relaxed by nature. Anyway, are other babies like this? How do you, parents, get rid of hiccups? Sorry, Iím freaking out a bit because this is my first baby.

Congratulations! That first baby brings lots of new worries.

Hiccups are normal for babies, especially if they haven't burped. You can try to burp the baby, or give him a pacifier. They bother you more than they bother him, though, so it is also okay to just let them be.

When you're up all night worrying, keep in mind that the days seem long, but the years are short!

I really appreciate your response. I guess I don't have to worry anymore if my baby will show such act again. Thanks! Someone also advised about breastfeeding if this happens again.
