Day 9: Baby hiccups – is there a cure???

Today’s blog is a short one, concerning the most distressing thing in my 9 day old’s life right now… HICCUPS. He seems to have them all the time and is finding them really upsetting – poor thing!

I don’t really have much else to say on the subject apart from to ask anyone one who can to help by getting in touch with any suggested cures. 
The problem is that the usual cures for adults just can’t be implemented on a newborn baby, I.e. a fright, downing a pint of water, holding his breath etc
Please drop me a line on Twitter with any suggestions – @365tired

  1. just a suggestion… maybe it’s the type of bottle you’re using? Something simple as that could make the BIGGEST difference. After my first child I will not use anything other than Dr. Brown Bottles. They have an interesting design, and I’ll admit it took a little trial and error to learn to clean the inside pieces. ( to save you this headache if you decide to try them : boil filter pieces in a pot of water with a little bit of dish soap. Most build up will simply fall off and then all you have to do is rinse. For any residue left over, use a q-tip)

    also make sure you’re burping halfway through the bottle as well as the end.

    good luck 🙂
