  • GRIPE WATER!! its works instantly!! its amazing. my dd gets the hiccups like 5-6x a day and the second the water hits her tongue they are practically gone! the sell a few kinds..some have to be kept in the fridge, some dont. I have both and keep one in the diaper bag and the rest of the bottle are practically in every room of the house.

  • My daugther (born 3/30/09) has hiccups all the time. I hate them because her little chest dips in ;(
    I have never heard of Gripe Water but will look into it and ask her doctor

  • Gripe water.
    I can not tell you how sick I got of hearing "they bother you more than the baby"... I knew before she was born that she hated it. All birth did was change her respons from frantic kicking to intense screaming. Gripe water was a godsend!

  • Wow, I've never heard of Gripe water, but I will definitely look into it. My 2 month old gets hiccups about 80% of the time after feedings. My mom says it's because I didn't not burp her long enough and she still has air trapped in there. I always feel bad when I see her little chest go in and out, but the doctor says they will go away on their own. I usually feed her a tiny little bit more formula and they go away.
