Good morning everyone. my LO is 1 month old now.. I have OALD and my LO and I have learned to work with it. But in the last week she has choked after she has finished eating. sometimes she makes a noise when she breathes in that sounds like she isn't getting enough air.She only makes the noise once, but she is doing it more times throughout the day now. more than once she has started gagging on spit up along with the sound. have you ever seen a dog vomit? their whole body moves... well, I was nursing this morning and she started to do that.. so i sat her up straight and after a few pats on the back she stopped. but she never spit up with it nor did i hear her swallow anything back down ( which usually happens when she gags during nursing or gags on spit up) she did not cry or get upset when this happened..
I do not think she was feeling well yesterday. she cried alot and there wasn't much i could do to sooth her.. she was also crying while feeding.. she would latch on and then unlatch to let out a squeal. it went on like that for most of the late afternoon and evening till she finally fell asleep around midnight.. and then slept for almost a 5 hour stretch. she also seemed hot yesterday, but her temp under the arm was 98.1. How much does what you eat effect them? I was worried that I ate something that bothered her.
I felt like we have been doing well that last 2 weeks nursing, but between this noise and her gagging or choking not sure what to define it as) I'm wondering if something in my milk is bothering her. I also noticed when she unlatches sometimes my milk looks like a string coming from her mouth to me. is that normal?
