  • a teaspoon or tablespoon of water, although water is not good for an infants kidneys this much will not hurt and take the hiccups away right away because all it is is air in the tummy good luck

  • A lot of times you just have to wait it out, but here's a few things I used to try. Most babies aren't bothered by them, but if they are try to distract them until they're over. Feeding can help, but be sure not to overfeed at one time, because that can lead to hiccups. Sometimes burping them will help too. One thing that I thought sounded strange when I read about it (but actually worked) was gently blowing in their face. It causes them to take a deep breath, and that change in breathing pattern sometimes stops the hiccups.

  • Dont worry about it. really. Unless she is upset or it's hurting her, it's a good way to build up their little muscles.
