  • not really anything...my baby had them really bad! All the time. Dr said she'll just get over it. She did.

  • Gripe water.
    My daughter hated them and gripe water worked, every time. Still does.
    Check the antiacid section of Target or ask the pharmacist.

  • My baby used to have them all the time and I thought it just meant she had enjoyed her bottle.

    But I did some searching online and found that this was an indicator of reflux. So I did some more research and when my baby started acting like she was in pain I made her formulas a bit thicker ... used baby rice cereal and low and behold she was happier and her hiccups disappeared. I'm not saying that your baby has reflux but thickening her bottle definitely helped my little princess. Don't use much. I only add in 1 teaspoon to 8 ounces of formula and use an avent teat (made especially for thicker fluids)

    rubbing her back also helped and having her sit up straight rather than lying dowm

    Good luck.
