Baby can''t breath properly

Hi, my son will be 1month tomorrow, when he was born he had yellow jaundice and was treated for it a few days later he was back in hospital because he wasn''t breathing properly, everytime he drank he would cry and after he drank everything would come out even through the nose. At the hospital they told me there was still slime on his chest, but they couldn''t find anything wrong with him. It continued to happen and I''ve taken him to another doctor and he also couldn''t find anything wrong, last night he was crying, he hardly slept &  when he drank everything came up again and through his nose. I am getting worried because this happens constantly and I don''t know what to do. He has been on bottle milk (Nan) not breast fed.

It seems that your baby has a problem with quite severe reflux as he is bringing up after every feed.The other possibility is he may have a problem with swallowing Either way it is essential that he is seen by a paediatrician.
