My DD is just 10 weeks and has been plagued by the hiccups almost since birth. 2-3 times a day lasting upto about 20mins. she gets really agitated and you can see her poor little chest jerking up and down and the only thing that helps a bit is being held and her paci.
One sure fire cure is to let her drink a little bit but as i'm coping with low supply I don't always have milk on hand and it seems silly to mix formula just for a few sips. I know that she can't really drink water at this age but would a few sips really be bad? I'm thinking 10-15ml. They used to sell fennel tea crystals here for babies over 3 months to help with stomach cramps, this is also essentially water. I have a pediatrician appointment in a few weeks so I might ask him.
Does anyone have any other hints or tricks that might work, I feel so bad for her. She starts vocalizing these weird noises and then I know within about 2 mins she will have the hiccups!
