Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Is there any fever?
Shortness of breath?
Blockage of his nose?
Please let me know.
Has he been seen for this as yet?
Crackling sounds in infants of his age are not so uncommon and usually is not something to worry about a great deal.
So I would just keep an eye.
If his symptoms are persistent then I would have his chest examined again and have a chest x ray done.
What do you mean when you say "sick", do you mean he is passing phlegm?
and it happens after feed?
This indicates reflux.
Meaning that some of the feed and some mucous associated with the feed is coming up.
Again this is not something to worry about a great deal and you can try using over-the-counter zantac syrup and see if that helps.
Also small multiple feeds are going to be more helpful than one large feed.
So try dividing the feeds up into smaller portions rather than giving one large feed at one time.
But again the lumpy milk that is coming out most likely means reflux or regurgitation.
It can happen because of a little over-feeding at times.
