grunting while eating..

my son is 5 months old.. an he is grunting,moaning, crying wiggling while he eats... he started this about 4 or 5 days ago.. we told the dr an they said its "normal" but i dont feel that this is normal... we take the bottle away an he cries so we give it back an hes fine.. then it starts over again =/

he does have a cold right now an i know he might not feel good... but what else could be causing this?

do your son/daughters do this?
