Well I have to take the boys to the pediatrician today (they were just there a week ago, last week was a wellness check) today they are going cause of their acid reflux.
They have always spit up after eating, even in the nicu. And never been bothered by it. Well these last few days they've spit up and the milk is mixed in with clear looking mucous. Aleks actually started choking twice yesterday because of it. I was so scared for him. He couldn't breath, I flipped him onto his stomach and patted his back and suctioned out his throat and nose so he could breath again. I haven't slept all night cause I was worried he would do it again after his feedings. I know it's common for babies to spit up and even have some mucous but it can't be normal to have so much they choke on it!
Also during their feedings and right after they grunt a lot! And they arch their backs or curl up when doing it like something is painful. And since they've had this mucous they now cry when they spit up. So I'm taking them in to see if there is anything we can do, if the doc can't do anything I'm never gonna sleep cause I'm gonna be nervous they'll choke.
