My son was born end of March, so he's about 4.5 mths old now. The last few mornings I've noticed that it sounds like he's wheezing when he breathes and yesterday after nursing him, I burped him and he spit up a bit. Went to clean up the mess and noticed it wasn't just milk but sort of phlegm-like. I called his Dr.'s office and they said because its not accompanied by a fever that it could just be nothing, because at night the fluid in your body collects (or something to this affect, can't remember actual convo) and to try a humidifier in his room at night. They said to keep an eye on it over the next few days and make sure he doesn't acquire other symptoms but if it keeps up, that we'll have him go in to see his doctor.
I did try the humidifier last night but this morning, he's still wheezing a bit again.
Anyone else have this? I plan on taking him in to his Dr's next week since its kept up but any reassurance or tips on what to do to help it, would be great!
Also, the wheezing doesn't last all day, only for an hour or so in the morning and then he'll cough and it will go away or it just goes away on its own.
