Paediatrician

Your baby's hiccups may entirely normal. She does seem to have this problem every day and it lasts for quite a long time. This may be due to reflux or a problem called 'inco-ordinated swallowing.' You should ask your paediatrician to see her about this.
Your baby should not be snoring at her age. She may have enlarged adenoids. Please ask the paediatrician about this as well.
