The breast-fed child passes frequent, curdy, semi-solid motions. Such motions are not uncommon after every feed in some infants. This is quite normal. As long as the baby is feeding well, sleeping adequately and gaining weight, there is no need to be alarmed about the number of stool. Hiccups are common among newborns. They might sound alarming to grown ups, but they are quite harmless. They are due to the baby swallowing air at feeding time. This irritates the diaphragm, causing hiccups.
