My daughter had them all the time. While she was in special care the nurse told me its completly normal and sucking is the best way to get rid of them. It has some funny way of correcting the upset in their little belly's. The hospital told me to use a dummy/pacifier instead of feeding particularly if you are breastfeeding, which can be a little tricky if your out getting the groceries for example.
Hiccups never seem to hurt my daughter and 5 months on she still gets them on a daily basis. Fondly known as Mr hiccup coming to visit !

The Little Tummies Gripe Water is awesome. My daughter would get them ALL the time (and still does at 4 months), but they usually go away within moments of giving her the gripe water. She was also coliky and this stuff helped so much when nothing else we tried would work.

You can try giving your baby some more formula or put him/her back on your breast. I found that the hiccups helped my daughter. They would control the bad gas attacks that she would sometimes get. If they are really bad Gripe water can also help.
