  • I don't know. I haven't even had the hiccups since I was a kid. If I hiccup it is one or 2 times and that is it so I don't count those as hiccups since it isn't more than that

  • We have used the penney on the forehead trick. you stick a penney to your forehead and consentrate on the penney to not drop. it works pretty fast with me and my kids.

  • Breathe into a paper lunch bag. Gather the top of the bag around your nose. Inhale and exhale.

  • Hold my breath for a few minutes or guzzle down a can of soda really quickly so that I belch loudly.
