  • You SHOULD NOT use gripe water. It is the same thing as gas drops and that will not help relieve hiccups. If you don't believe me buy both and look at the ingredients, they are the same. Just give them a little bit of water. Depending on the age is how much you give them, if they are really young then not much at all just enough to make the hiccups go away.

  • I use a little bit of suger water for Kortana. Just enough to stop the hiccups though. And i only had like 1/2 a teaspoon of suger to about 2 oz of water.

  • Hiccups are normal for most babies. My mother-in-law just told me to put my lil ones chest against mine to warm her up and it should take it away. It actually worked.

  • I have 5 kids. They all had hiccups as babies. It's normal and not at all harmful or something you should try to stop or alleiviate. Just ignore them, they go away on their own. Babies don't mind them like adults do. Relax and enjoy your little one! Good luck!
