when i was a new mum i bought a movement sensor as i was scared something would happen, what it does is track there movement and breathing and if they dont breath for a certain length of time it sets an alarm off which would wake the dead myt be worth investing in

If he's choking on it, he needs an Upper GI and at a minimum positional changes, such as never lay on the back, or only on the back when at a 45 degree angle with the head up at all times. Get to the doctor before it causes permanent damage. This is serious.

CALL YOUR DOCTOR!!!!!
Please take your child in as soon as possible. In the mean time, don't lay him down flat. Keep him on an incline to reduce the amount of reflux. Talk to you doctor about possibly changing your son's diet.

Have you seen a doctor and know for sure it's reflux? If so, he should have given you some reflux meds for him (We went through A LOT of oval, lol). You can also raise the head of his crib up by using a rolled up blanket (we put books under the legs of the crib) and roll up a blanket under his bum so he doesn't slid down.
