My baby boy is 8 month old.
I have following problem ( for last 3-4 days ).
I made some visit to pediatrician and otorinolaringologist and they found everything absolutely OK with the baby ( after physical examination of my baby ).
Every time when we try to feed our baby with some liquid ( juice , milk ,tea , water ) he start to choke up after every third-fourth sucking ( with milk bottle ) or drinking ( when we feed him with the small tea spoon ).
He has wish to take the liquid food without any fear (when we try to feed him ) but at the same time he is very cautious with sucking the milk from the bottle ( because of chokin reflex ) , he stay with his pacifier in the mouth for 1-2 minutes and after that he suck the milk for a while and start to choke up.
At the same time baby has no any problem with taking a solid or creamy food ( industrial baby food or domestic mixed baby meal ).
He has 4 Central incisor and every time when they showed it was followed with the temperature between 37-38C ( 99-100 Fahrenheit ), my baby get his last central incisior almost the same days when start the problem with liquid choking ( I really do not know is it in some connection with chocking problem ).
It is really confusing situation.
Baby is very happy he is smiling and playing all the time , his behaviour is absolutely normal for 8 month baby.
4 days before he start to choke up with the liquid we gave him a little bit warmer milk and we think he may be burn himself but after that he continue to take a liquid food without any problem ( problem has start 2 days after described situation ).

Please help me with advice what to do with my baby , is it described situation connected with some problem with epiglottis inervation or dysphagia ( but dysphagia problem ususally not come so rapid ).
Waiting for prompt reply.

Best regards

  • give him some time to get into the groove. hes obviously not in serious trouble if hes happy and well nourished. I do recommend taking an infant focused CPR/water rescue just in case. you'll probably never need to use it but then you wont have to worry about that too.
