My 9 month old has choked on food, spit, air, you name it. I have had to perform the hemlieck maneuver 3 times. She was diagnosed with reflux recently and given the generic for Prilosec which has helped some but not made a big difference. She coughs a lot, has puffy eyes often, had exzema which cortizone helped I've tried everything!! She has hated her carseat since day one and the worst or scariest choking episodes have happened in the car. She normally screams to the point of choking, breaking out in hives, swollen eyes and even once out of the car and in my arms she is hyperventilating for the next 30 min. AND NO she's not "playing me". She chokes when she's happy too and I don't want to hear "just train her or let her cry it out". Both me and my pediatrician agree that would lead to deadly consequences for her. I have to stop the car and/or jerked her out of her car seat and beat her back till she gets the milk/spit out. I no longer drive with her by myself. My real concern is she's soley breastfed with stage 1 and 2 babyfoods. I cut dairy/caffeine out, lifted bed, probiotics...the whole nine yards. Nothing works. Does this sound like alleegies to something in her environment? I'm concerned she is allergic to my milk, which scares me bc every female generations back and me have crohns disease so formula scares me (soy formula has been linked to causing crohns)! Help!
