Hi, my baby is four months old. All of a sudden, he caught an infection. I always prefer lying down to feed him. The doctor examined him and mentioned that my baby is choking while feeding and that choked milk caused infection. He asked me to sit and have his head lifted while feeding, even now he chokes in the sitting position, and I express some milk before feeding him as well, but still choking continues. Does burping help him if he chokes? Please help.

Hello, well this is what I am facing recently with my baby most of the times. She gulps, chokes, sputters, during feedings. She is very fussy at the breast - she pulls my breast with her mouth, arches, holds herself very stiff, screaming, as she is struggling with my breast.
It seems like a battle, nursing fitfully on and off, and once she stops breastfeeding, I can see the milk coming down her mouth, I am laying down, tummy to tummy position most of the times, often using the cradle hold position,
Sometimes she has explosive stools, occasionally watery, but still, she is having 6-8 times poops per day, mustard color sometimes dark mustard. It happens that during a day she cries a lot and is restless as if she is gassy. I have been searching online, and read that I could be facing oversupply?? You think so??
She is now in her 3rd week (22 days old), she is sleeping most of the time, only wakes up when she wants to eat. It rarely happens that she is awake for no reason other than having gas or eating.
During the night she sleeps for almost 4 hours. Sometimes she can sleep for 5 hours. But during the day she sleeps for 2-3 hours and wakes up again to eat, sometimes she eats for 5 minutes then falls asleep, and I can't make her wake up to continue breastfeeding, but she's gaining weight. Is this normal? I am anxious about all the things.
