Infant with reflux- choking at night. What to do?
She sleeps on a Tucker Wedge/sling so she is practically standing up at night, but still chokes, refluxes, grunts, etc. most of the night. I am at a point now where I don't sleep at all- ever. I can barely take care of her (or my older child) due to exhaustion.
What I want to know is- should I just try to sleep through it and assume that she is going to be ok, or do I need to grab her and hold her (or let her sleep on me) every time the reflux comes up? The GI Dr told me in the hospital that she won't suffocate or die if the choking happens and that I can pat her on the back but she should be able to clear it. He was very non nonchalant about it. But that just seems crazy to me. Help!
