not helpful: Infants have no need and derive no benefit from water supplements. Breast milk or formula is designed to provide for all of babies needs. Hiccoughs are driven by an electrical wave in the breathing muscle like a heartbeat and will fade when it decides to, supplements of milk or water have no direct benefit.
