Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
Hi,

I feel she is having recurrent micro aspirations and that is the root cause for her recurrent respiratory symptoms. She might get better with gastrostomy feeding and please discuss this with her Pediatrician please.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
