    My babies cough alot after they have been drinking their bottle for a little bit. the cough is getting to sound pretty deep. After about 15 minutes they are fine, that is, until the next feeding. Is there something wrong with the nipples? I'm using Pritchard. Will the cough go away when they are weaned? Two of the babies are 6 weeks and one of them is 8 weeks. Please help.


    thanks!

    Forgot to mention, the babies are the only ones afflicted, no adults.

    My bottle baby does the same thing, so I would be interested in knowing the answer as well. He does not cough at any other time.
    Thanks,
