Quoting I ♥ Squishy:“ You're not already seeing a Pediatrician? And don't worry about the meconium....that is life threatening therefore I would agree that it has nothing to do with what is happening now.”whats wrong with seeing a pediatrician now? its super scary stuff and i dont want to mess with his breathing what if somthing is actually wrongand could damage his lungs. im pretty sure its not normaland its super loud, wakes him up during the night, andhes havinga hardtimedrinking, also it takes himawhile to catch his breath after choking.i dont know i guess its a first time parents worries

Quoting ashley005:“ oh haha sorry! no its a regular family dr who is refering me to a pedi. he coughs alot in his sleep it seems like a dry cough tho, im going to google GERD haha”My son had the exact same problem only his raspy breathing turned into a chronic cough. It took 5 weeks for Pedi's to figure out what was wrong. Finally they did an Upper GI with barium swallow which confirmed the SILENT GERD. He was switched to thickened formula (Similac Sensitive RS, rice & starch) and he was put on Zantac twice a day. After he was on the Zantac for about 5 weeks he was switched back to regular Similac Sensitive. He was on Zantac from about 3 months to 11 months.
