I've posted in a couple of places that my babe, Massimo, is congested at night. I use nosefrida and saline, burp him after he feeds, I have a humidifier with a cool mist, raised his bassinet near his head a bit (but he ended up at the other end of bassinet one night so that freaked me out).etc.
Tonight, after 2 hours of sleep, his noises woke me up..I took him out of his swaddle and I found him curled up, head tilted back with spit up coming out...choking. I yelled at my husband and we got the spit out, put him on my DH arm belly down and patted his back to get him to spit or burp, undressed him, used nosefrida and "burped" him some more. He was breathing and kinda crying the whole time so that kept us sane. This was really freaky!! I have never been so scared in my life. He is better now and fed....I burped him a few times between his feed because I'm so scared.
I have him sleeping on his tummy at this moment because he is lying on my chest. I don't want to move until it is time to get up. Poor baby. Any other moms dealing with this? I think this is reflux and will be going to the doctor. I'm wondering if the doctor will suggest sleeping on his side vs back. I don't want to see that happen again!
