Reflux: This sounds like it may be Gastro esophageal reflux. This is something that can be easily diagnosed radiologically. I recommend you discuss this with your pediatrician who can prescribe medications that may help. Reflux that goes untreated can cause damage to the esophagus and can cause problems such as asthma.
