If you’ve ever felt frustrated by hiccups and didn’t know what to do about them, then this post is for you!
Now, I can’t take credit for this never-fail cure. It came from the my wonderful Mum-in-law who is a font of wisdom. I’m not sure where she got this cure from. But I like to imagine that it was handed down from generations of wise Jewish mothers alongside stories about prophets and recipes for a good chicken soup!
I’m serious! This cure has never failed me, my husband or my kids! It works EVERY SINGLE TIME! And what’s more it’s such a great cure, that my kids often ask for it when I’m not totally convinced they even HAVE the hiccups!
Are you ready?
You will need:
- a teaspoon
- a small amount of sugar
- a lemon
Yes, that’s all you need!
- Cut the lemon in half
- Get a teaspoon of sugar
- Gently squeeze some lemon juice onto the teaspoon of sugar until it is completely saturated
- Swallow!! Hiccups are instantly gone!
Things to note:
You must use FRESH lemon. No store bought pre-made lemon juice. It MUST be fresh!
Also, I’m not sure at what age you can start giving this to your young ones. I think my kids started having it after they were 18 months or so. Basically, when you would allow your kid to lick a lollipop is probably the age you can use this cure.
And that’s it! I’ve tried it with white sugar and brown and it still works.
Your kids will be happy for this cure – no more sudden jumping out of the closet tactics or standing on their heads.
This cure is delicious, simple and effective. What more could you want?
What methods have you used to cure hiccups in the past? Do you have a method that has never failed you? I’d love to hear about it!
