Hi Did a doctor see him at the clinic? How long has this been going on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A triage nurse seen him ..she said it was while he can't blow his nose and it get stuck in his throat and there was nothing they could do and jus today
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. This sound like colic which does occur at his age and resolves with time, but it also sounds as though he may have either a sinus infection or bronchitis. I think this time around he needs to see a doctor rather than just a nurse and he may need antibiotics Stevie. For now, just feed him small feedings every two hours and continue to comfort him.

Let me know if you need more information please
