Should I be concerned about my newborn? Lovemommylife Due June 2 (girl); 1 child; 3 angel babies; New Mexico 1421 posts

So I have called the ER and they wont say anything over the phone or give me any advice. I started showing signs of the flu yesterday, vomiting, chills, body aches. I have kept myself as far away from lo as I can but it's hard because I'm breast feeding. Well he's been puking up what he eats. Not like projectile and it doesn't seem like regular spit it, it's a good amount. & today I've noticed he sounds raspy when he breathes in his sleep. Awake his breathing is normal. But he also has been making gagging motions in his sleep. He has no fever. I don't want to take him in and him be fine and end up getting something from the ER. I'm hoping all of this sounds normal?

Does his pedi have an after hours line? Does his insurance has a nurses line?

Yeah newborns will have wierd sounds when they breathe at night. As long as he's not struggling to breathe, running a fever, or projectiling I wouldn't worry too much. Right now it's just sounding like normal NB stuff. Is there not a nurse line or does your pedi have an after hour number you can call?

You don't have to stay away from him necessarily, just make sure you are washing your hands and such. What do you mean it doesn't seem like regular spit up, though? Is it constant? Is it every time he eats? Are you burping him and/or sitting him up for a bit after he eats? Sorry for all the questions, lol. Just trying to get a little more info! :)

There is an advice line but I don't think it's after hours.

It all sounds like normal newb stuff ...the raspiness, the gagging motions, and the spit up.

Lol yeah my 2 yr old will snort in his sleep from time to time, he's done it from day one. One big reason I didn't cosleep! Their odd little sounds made my mommy mind stay up all night.

Like isn't normal spit up a tiny amount. This is how it happens I'll be feeding him on one breast and he sometimes chokes, but beside that he'll come off the breast and my milk like pours out of his mouth, almost like he didn't swallow it or fall asleep on the b**b and it got backed up. I sit him up after he eats and it has seemed to help some I guess.

You could have overacting let down. Try nursing him Laying reclined more and see if that helps.
