Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. But with a very young age, too many possibilities can happen to your child. Choking and spit up is a natural condition, because the baby's stomach is small and the stomach retaining muscles are still not strong. Difficulty in breathing must also be seen again, from where you assess the difficulty of breathing. If you judge from the breathing that is fairly fast, the baby's breathing is indeed faster than children or adults, especially when they are only 1 month old.
Then also need to be explored what causes you to think that there is mucus, whether his breathing sounds, whether he vomits the milk he drinks and so forth. Our advice, if you are worried, it would be better if you immediately consult your child at a pediatrician. Because it takes a variety of information, such as whether your baby was born premature or normal, whether he was fussy, whether a fever, how many breaths in a minute, and how the clinical condition, whether weak, active, and the like. All of this information is important to be able to determine the most appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Meanwhile, regardless of whether your child is actually experiencing an abnormality or not, we do not recommend that you provide independent treatment before an examination by a doctor. This is because with his very young age, his body is very vulnerable and his handling must be really appropriate to his needs. Do not give him medicine, herbs or any action without doctor's advice, and if something serious or alarming happens, immediately take it to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
