DD has been bottle fed formula since just shy of 1 week old. She seemed to do fine with it. Now, in the last few days she has started very frequently choke/coughing while drinking her bottles.
It definitely tends to happen more often when she's tired/drowsy than while fully awake. It also tends to happen when she's further into her bottles rather than when she just starts and is really super actively sucking because she's hungry.
She'll just be drinking along and then all of the sudden she'll kind of pause and then she'll cough a few times. Sometimes it's just coughing, sometimes you can tell she's kind of choking a little and gasping a bit. The coughing and everything is only for a few seconds and then she's totally fine and back to wanting to eat, but then it'll happen again.
She's not doing anything out of the ordinary other than this, no spitting up, doesn't seem to be in pain or anything like that, I just can't figure it out. I suspect it's just like she's getting out of rhythm with her sucking and the liquid is collecting in her throat, but why does it keep happening if that's the case and why is it just starting now at 5 weeks when she's been fine up until the last few days? Also, you think she'd learn not to allow this to keep happening because it certainly can't be enjoyable to her.
Anyone experience this? Thoughts? Is it something I should be concerned about?
