BABY HICCUPS

My baby has the hiccups EVERYTIME after being breastfed.  I know it's common for them, but this is EVERYTIME after feeding on the breast.  I'm wondering if she's not latching on correctly (which looks like she is) to where she's taking in ALOT of air?  Has anyone else had this problem?  Any solutions? Suggestions? Or is this normal?

Hiccups are very normal in a small baby.  Don't worry.  As long as she seems to be getting enough milk and growing / wetting nappies, nothing to worry about.

Your instinct seems right-on.  Taking in alot of air is usually the culprit...so normal!  My baby gets them every now and then too.
