    Yup! Hiccups are familiar with all infants, and this happens when diaphragm - the muscle that helps us to breathe associates vigorously.

    Treatment for Baby Hiccups are:-

    >> Breast feeding helps child's diaphragms relax.
    >> Must provide sugar water solution in a bottle to suck.
    >> During hiccups, must Hold your baby in an upright position.
    >> Must always Keep baby warm.

    I think you should consult your Family Physician before any future remedies..

    Hi Shri,

    Keeping the baby upright for sometime is the best remedy to get rid of the continuous hiccups. At the same time, do not try remedies like pulling the tongue and pressing the eyeballs, as these are the common folk remedies in some cultures.
