my little guy, chance, is 4 months old. he's had a terrible chronic wheeze for the last two months. it usually flairs up after his bottles. the dr's have tried everything from breathing treatments with 4 different types of steriods, to a liquid steriod, to reflux meds, to an antibiotic, to switching his formula, getting rid of our cat, a sweat test to screen for CF. they did an esopheogram to see if he was aspirating. that's not it either. has anyone had a problem like this? the poor guy is downright miserable at times and i don't know what to do!

When my son was younger he had noisy breathing and now my friend's daughter has it and my other friend's little girl that's 6 had it when she was a baby also. It was just called a floppy trachea. Sounds like what your son has. They just grow out of it. My son stopped once he could sit up better.

My cousins little girl used to wheeze all the time. Her dad did though too when he was a baby. Their not sure why her baby (or dad for that matter) did this but they did grow out of it by the time they were a year old. I hope it's the same case for yours. =( It's never fun when you worry about your little ones.
