    I do not know why exactly. I know skin babies do too but I cannot for the life of me remember what the dr said to as the why. Something still developing I think.

    Isn't it because they eat/drink too fast it causes a twitching of the diaphram??

    Brutus used to get them a lot! I would lay him on his back and rub his chest and sometimes pat him and it would go away!

    Emma got them a lot from 8 weeks to 12.5 weeks. She hasn't had them too much the last month, just here and there.

    Fergie seems to get them after drinking h2o and before dinner. So maybe it has something to do w/ the EB being hungry?

    Tank got them alot when we was between 8-16 weeks and they have tapered off from there. Just babies being babies i think!

    My Mable used to get them something fierce. She outgrew them, as I recall now. Bo has never had them that I know of and Bo has had them maybe twice? I would sure like to know WHY though. That's a great question.

    As a bartender for many years, I used to have a dozen "cures" for the hiccups. The one that always worked was a concoction/ritual using sugar and bitters. I think the taste shocked you out of having them....

    Tater gets them quite often, but it doesn't seem to bother him and only last a short time.
