Pediatrics/10 mo old gags when laid down for bed
For the past couple of nights, if I lay my son down to put hiself to bed he gags on seemingly nothing. But if i lay him down after he's already asleep he's fine.
Today he developed a runny nose so I took the gagging to be the mucus draining in his throat but it seemed strange that it was only at night. Then I thought maybe indigestion?
Im scared to have him sleep in his own bed because of this so he's been in our bed for a week.
I asked his doctor and he said that he's gagging on spit but that didn't seem right because he never did before.
Any idea of what it could be? Should I be concerned about him in his sleep?
I would wonder if he has some GERD, acid reflux, symptoms. This can occur at any time in ones life and is more common when one is ill with something like a cold. Kids this age can vomit and will do fine. He won't choke to death. He can handle this well.
Explore with your doctor this possibility,
Good luck, dr. Olson
