My baby gets Asphyxia, grunt, agitated while feeding. Is there any doctor Online Who can help my baby ?

Hello, Could anybody help me ? My baby is presenting problems while feeding him by bottle and breastfeed, we spent almost one hour feeding him due to getting every time asphyxia and sometimes choking and not responding, I have to take him up and down to return back his breathing, as well as when I am feeding him he will normally make sounds as grunting or screaming and getting red like if something is bothering him inside to pass the food, he almost every time swallows the food in a very rude way and when he finally pass his stomach will immediately sounds a lot, after that he will have gas with only one once of milk finished and that will not let him continuous eating as the gas inside his stomach is pushing up and down to burp; to burp is the biggest challenge he gets more asphyxia and it may takes long time, he cries since he is not able to pass more food because of the gas and he is so hungry but we cannot give him more until he burps and that reduce the asphyxia to allow him to pass food, also he is having around five burps during and after feeding and while sleeping time, also for this we have to be checking as he may get choking or asphyxia I guess for some gas still inside, he is having constipation every time he wants to pass stool, the color of his poop is dark green few times with little yellow and the form is like a past, other typical situation is when he sleeps he normally breaths strongly and his rate keeps speeding up until he makes a big sigh that brings the rate down for a minutes but he starts up again all this leaves him with only a half an hour good sleep after feeding and many hours of complaints restless and tiredness , It is not easy to take videos since when this situations happens are emergencies to sort out anyhow I’d take some videos and showed to the doctor but not enough effective for him to see the symptoms he said some agitation it is normal in newborn babies and that the videos were to long to watch, I don’t know what to do, I don’t have sources to pay a different doctor than the one provided by the insurance company, but I would like to know of every suggestions or similar cases so that if I have to spent money I will go straight to the tests that he needs or at least I have more idea of what is going on with

Thanks for writing to us.
Feeling asphyxiated while feeding might be indicative of a cardiac problem or an esophageal fistula or there may be a cleft in his palate that is causing the ingested milk to go into the respiratory tract causing the asphyxia. This is a serious problem and needs immediate medical attention. You should consult his pediatrician soon.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
