What are some other ways I can say something that means the same thing as "little by little"? The only other thing I know is "bit by bit."
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
There are quite a few —by— phrases at your disposal. The established ones, besides little by little are: step by step, day by day, inch by inch, and bit by bit. You can also construct any of your own choosing, depending on the context, e.g. moment by moment, sip by sip, limp by limp, and even wiggle by wiggle!
†Credit goes to Martha for this suggestion.
Perhaps 'gradually' may fit your needs, as it also suggests progression in small increments.
