I think my 5 day old baby is sick, she keeps gagging, coughing, spitting up, and choking on her formula.
Would you wait for her 2 week check-up or take her to the pediatrician to make sure its nothing serious?
Sorry I wasn't super specific, she gags, coughs, and spits up with or without a bottle, she only chokes when she is eating generally brought on by gagging...

Try a slower flow nipple. She is getting too much too fast.

Could be bad acid reflux. Check the flows of the nipples and don't her drink super fast.

I agree with the others about checking the nipple first.

Try a slower flow nipple and keep her upright after she has a bottle for at least half an hour.

Then try sitting her upright more while feeding. She is not sick, she is just getting more formula than she can swallow at once.
