I was told by one pediatrician that I was overfeeding my breastfed son and that's why he had a stomach ache and was vomiting. He insisted it was not reflux because Sullivan was gaining weight rapidly. He was constantly eating because he was a newborn but perhaps also because the milk was soothing as the stomach acid was rising up his throat. I got a second opinion and my son was diagnosed with GERD and after a swallow study was performed he was also diagnosed with dysphagia which explains why he would choke on "nothing" sometimes. This is what he would do during a bad episode (before he was diagnosed and before treatment). Just because your baby is gaining weight, does not mean they don't have Reflux Disease.
