5 week old choking on spit?

My son is 5 weeks old and has had a few terrifying episodes of choking on what seems like his own spit. I'll lay him down for a diaper change and then out of nowhere his eyes start bulging and he wont breathe. Theres thick,clear, bubbly liquid in his mouth that isn't spit up and it hasn't been right after a feeding. After suctioning his nose and mouth I finally get him to breathe. I literally thought my son was going to die in my arms. Pediatrician says its nothing to worry about but i'm terrified to take my eyes off of him. Anyone have similar problem??
