I have already read several opinions about the hiccups. Mine, got a doctor in Mechelen, really helps. I came over to him with our son who had the hiccups for two days. He is going to be his private department and comes back with sugar, vinegar, a tablespoon and a teaspoon. The spoon he does a teaspoon of sugar, otherwise he fills the spoon with vinegar. My son has to take it. Before he swallows the hiccups away.
