please do not give water for hiccups . Try breast feeding instead and make sure u burp ur baby after every feed . Avoid water up untill 6 months at least . I started water after starting solids . my baby had hiccups too bf always helped .

The cradle cap and the baby acne will go away with time. Both are normal for newborns. For cradle cap comb baby's hair even if baby does not really have any. That helps stimulate the skin. Big thing is to just give it time. For the hiccups that is also normal in newborns. Don't give water. A newborn does not need water. The hiccups will go away, just a normal thing all newborns get as they get older it will lessen.

hey ur baby is just 5 weeks old . Cradle cap may last up to 1 yr . My baby is 9 months old n still has cradle cap very little though . Combing n apllying baby shampoo will help. Just do it gently .
