I've been looking for the same answer, she gets them EVERY feeding, even when she was BF...I have gripe water but I haven't tried it for hiccups yet
I've read that hiccups generally don't bother them. You can try burping her after every feeding, if you don't already. And whether you are feeding her formula or breastmilk, offering her some can help them go away, by her sucking.
I agree with this :-)

"New parents come armed with many questions. Common questions are answered here.. Another common question is if it is okay for a newborn to hiccup. Many newborns hiccup…it is very normal.
Hiccups are caused when the diaphragm contracts. This is involuntary. We do not know why newborns are more prone to hiccups, but it may be do to immaturity of the diaphragm.
Hiccups do not bother the newborn, and they do not need to be stopped. You do not need to give them water or try any other hiccup stopping techniques. The hiccups will decrease in frequency over the first few weeks."
