I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their baby so I can kind of have an idea as to what is going on.
My daughter woke up last night about three times "throwing/coughing up" thick, clear mucous/phlem. I picked her up and patted her on the back to get it all out and she would be fine and go back to sleep until about a half hour later and it would happen again. This has happened about twice before and the doctor said "well, she seems and sounds fine" and just sent me home.
It only happens at night not during the day. I don't know if it is excessive saliva(maybe from teething) that builds up in her mouth and throat while sleeping and then she starts couging it out(the doctor said no). She seems fine otherwise, no fever, cough, runny nose......just waking up and throwing up this thick clear mucous.
Any suggestions would be great because the doctor doesn't seem to want to bother with it since she is healthy otherwise.
BTW, she is almost 11 months actual, 9 adjusted
