Zachary has had quite a few bouts of hiccups, and although it doesn't upset him (and it's quite funny to watch) I wondered whether there was anything I could do to ease them. Checked out a few internet sites which confirmed it's all completely normal in a new born and there's really nothing you can do except sit them out.

I did enjoy this piece of advice though...

"There isn’t a lot you can do to stop the hiccups in a newborn baby. Certainly the old wives-tale solutions for adults (such as standing on your head, breathing into a paper bag, getting a scare etc.,) should not be tried on your infant."
