It's easy to make my baby laugh and it's also easy for her to get hiccups after a few giggles. Is this normal? I know that they do get hiccups specially when they're really young but she rarely had it when she was a lot younger.

The hiccups are a common thing among children....although I am not sure what actually causes them...LOL I have heard about grown people who have had the hiccups for several hours....even days at a time...LOL

I really hate having hiccups that's why i initially got worried of having my little one go through a long hiccup day (that's what we call it). It also spoils the fun during our laughing craze.

hi, my nephew use to get hiccups after laughing and my sister would just give him a drink, the hiccups would go away eventually. As for this being a normal thing, I dont know, but it does happen... Ask your GP

Hiccups are very normal. I was worried too but my daughter's pediatrician told me that she is normal. No need to worry.

Yes and probably gets wind afterwards to its because when they laugh they suck in alot of air same as when they cry so they get hiccups and wind. Enjoy your baby thats the best time.
