It's the only thing that's ever worked for me, and I have a really sensitive gag reflex so having the hiccups has made me sick on more than one occasion. Not sure how i'd cope if the cure made me sick too...

If you get sick to your stomach when upside down, such as myself, this would lead to the same result OP suffered with the babysittee.

The trick where you hold your breath, swallow twice and then exhale slowly, has proven to work every single time for me (though I did have to do it a second time for the one hiccup), and anyone I suggested it to so far.


Most of the time, the cure for hiccups is to forget about them. So just try really hard to focus on something else. If they still persist, it's most likely trapped gas, or muscle spasms.

Fuck you people disliking 4s comment. I personally thought it was funny, he wasn't being obnoxious and didn't say anything worthy of you arse wipes disliking it.

I never heard of that one. But I always hold my breath for a bit and if you do that I find for me they go away almost always.

Did the hiccups stop when she threw up though? Did it work?

Well it stopped the hiccups, right?

Actually, as hiccups are caused by your diaphragm spasming, and leaning over a sink to drink out of the opposite side of the glass stretches those muscles it gives them a chance to "reset" and therefore does get rid of some peoples hiccups.
