So what do you think, folks? Is that reflux? Apnea? It has been a lot worse this weekend for some reason. Poor baby. He doesn't generally cry, though, or arch his back, and he rarely spits up... I just don't know what to do. Notice that he's upright when it happens. It's worse at night when he's lying down. Nothing is scarier than being jolted awake by your baby gasping for air.
