DD has had hiccups on and off all day, normal?

1 1/2yr old DD has had hiccups all day. Yesterday my Cousins 3yr old son had hiccups all day. I know hiccups arent contagous, but is it anything to worry about? She seems annoyed by them. But shes so small I cant help her. The "scare away the hiccups" or "hold your breath" methods wont work.

What causes hiccups anyway?

  • Its caused by gulping too much air. Main cause is eating or drinking too fast. They aren't really anything to worry about.

  • Like the PP said, it could be from eating or drinking too fast. But is this the first time this has happened or does it happen often?

  • Does he laugh alot? Cuz laughing causes my son to get the hiccups all the time
