normal or not?

my 1 month old stops breathing during feedings, but only for a few seconds then she'll start coughing and be fine after.. she also does this when she spits up plus she drools a lot.. is this normal? I'm a new mom and totally freaked out about everything she does.

  • I'm not sure if it is or not, and I'd call the dr ASAP.

  • If you re bottle feeding, the flow may be to fast for her, and if you are breastfeeding, then you may have an overactive letdown. I would call the dr. and ask for opinions. Good luck momma!
