  • I've had 4 children...I find letting them suck helps. It is just something that happens.

  • I tried Gripe Water. Sometimes it helped, but when they were really bad I think time was the best thing. Tried a pacifier, but my son would not and still doesn't take one. We also have tried warm water with just a teeny bit of sugar.....like a pinch

  • Gripe water helped us. I knew before my daughter was born that she hated the hiccups. Once she arrived, I was desperate for something to calm her screams. Gripe water worked every time for us.
