  • Too early to give her water and the hiccups are bothering you a lot more than they are bothering her.

  • seriousley try gripe water for babies. my son had the same problem and the min I gave him the gripe water the hiccups stopped. I got mine at walgreens but I think you can get it at meijer or any other superstore. its perfectly safe for babies any age. its made for babies. its kind of expensive but it really works. it also works for colic and other tummy discomforts.

  • I forgot to mention gripe water is usually found in medicine or baby isles.

  • YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO GIVE WATER TO BABIES!!!!!!!!!! It's the stupid hiccups. They're not bothering the baby at all. Just ignore them and go on.

  • They will go away. My son always gets the hiccups when he eats. Normally after his first burp he starts hiccuping.

  • My 2 week old baby also has hiccups after she has her milk for the most part but I just hold her continue burping her, and they go away. She doesn't seem to be bothered by it.

  • Babies and children tend to hiccup a lot. It doesn't hurt them. Some say that the hiccups were designed to exercise the diaphram in utero. It's just a muscle spasm...don't worry about it.
