Is this reflux? It's like he chokes and gags when he burps after eating, he doesn't seem unhappy about it, once it's over it's over (he's not a fussy baby anyway) we have a dr's appt on Mon. so I'm going to ask him then, but I thought I'd try to get some ideas over the weekend from u girls if u can help :) Thanks.

Cheryl -


My guess would be no reflux just a young baby that will grow out of the gagging and choking with time. I know how scary that can be for a mom though since my DD2 would do that while nursing when she was really little.


Here's a link that I think will help you decide if you need to aggressively pursue an investigation of reflux.

Thank you that site really helped, it doesn't seem to bother him at all, so I guess that's a good sign. I'll talk to the Dr. on Mon.
