If not better by 7 days, needs peds GI eval and study. ...Read more

My child throws himself on the floor and pounds his fists. How should I respond?

A 30 days old child, each time after feeding she sleeps and during her sleep she throw out some milk but sometimes she chokes with them. Any solution?

Pediatrician: Can check to determine if she is having reflux. That is when the ability to move formula through the stomach and on is slow or there is a tendency for it to come back up into the esophagus from the stomach. Choking can occur when the refluxed formula enters the upper airway. You should bring her to her doctor to have her checked and if this is the case her doctor will recommend actions to limit the reflux of milk. These may include thickening her formula if she is bottle fed, giving an antacid, having her in an upright position after feeding for a period of time and possibly changing her formula if it is determined that she is having an intolerance to it.
