Hey all my Son is 16 weeks and since about 6 weeks he has not gained much weight at all being born a big chunky 9 pounds he is only 13 pound now. He always had a raspy breathing and his chest was slightly sunken after going back and forth from doctors and hospital being told by one guy its urgent and the next no its nothing a paediatrician said he probably had a floppy larynx during the time we got in to see the paediatrician Ewan was doing well for about a week the pead said to put him on solids so he started gaining weight better which we did and he has taken to them well he still only drinks 100 ml in a sitting and he should be on closer to 240. We get him weighed on Friday but since Monday his breathing has come back worse and he now has coughing and can't even cry for his raspy voice.. does any one else have experience with floppy larynx.. what can help what can I do to help him?
I am worried sick watching him like a hawk ready to run to emergency.
