3 Bumps

"Bubble Guts?"

My 4 1/2 month old son has "bubble guts". While holding him, or putting pressure on his abdomen, it sounds like there are bubbles, kind of like big gas bubbles, but not really exactly like gas bubbles. He sounds like he is on the verge of vomiting and also sounds like he is borderline choking on his own saliva.....it is very peculiar. He seems totally fine otherwise...not fussy or feverish. Whatdyathink?

  • He's probably just got alot of gas. Babies tend to swallow alot of air and so that is the result. If you are really concerned check with your Dr.
