Hi. This is my very fist time posting on any blog!!

My 6 week old baby has been gagging, spitting up milk and drooling. He also sounds like he has alot of phlegm in his throat.
Does he have a cold? To early for teething?

Hmm, have you been into the pedi for them to have a listen to him? It may just be a little cold but I'd bring him in to rule other things out. I think it probably is early for teething, some kids do get teeth that early but the majority do not.

He might have a swollen throat. Very possible he has a cold.

Definitely sounds as though he could have reflux. No time to find links for you, but do a search on MDC or google it.

My 6 wk old is doing the same thing - with the addition of eating his hands. I have no idea what it is. I thought it might be teething too.

I took him to the Dr. today and he finally gave him medication for Reflux. This is the third time I have taken him in. Last time was because he was crying for weeks, arching his back, wheezing and choking on his milk. All he kept saying was he was a fussy and colicky baby. Deep down I knew that he had reflux. I still took what the Dr. said and thought that these new symptoms were maybe caused by cold but this time the Dr. agreed and said that yes it is reflux. He just wanted to see if it would go away on its own.

I hope my little guy feels better with the meds.
