Re: Choking on own saliva
Younglife, I hope your son gets better.
I am growing concerned myself because my two month old daughter chokes on her saliva every day. She does stop breathing sometimes, but it's not for longer than a few seconds. She's never turned blue or anything, and I haven't had to use suction to get it out. I normally sit her up and forward, and pat her back, or rub her...for her comfort. The worst that it has gotten has been her tearing up a lot, and it lasted for about ten minutes.
My mom says that she got it from my dad who is 43 this year and still chokes on his own saliva a lot. LOL. Right now, I just watch her closely, and call her Juicy. It doesn't seem to bother her past the times when it happens.
I definitely think you should go through with what Chrissi said, soon. And if my daughter gets any worse, I'm going to have her checked out too.
