Hey my 15 weeks old baby keep waking up from his nap screaming and choking and he heavy breathing as well sound all stuffy just wondered what it could be and what I could do to help??
Hi Did a doctor see him at the clinic? How long has this been going on?

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
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
