Gulping swallowing noise


Q: Hi , My son is 2.5 Year old and weighing 13.7 kgs .Since 6 months weight was constant.He has recently started talking 2 letter words.Other than speech he does not have any development delay.but since 2 to 3 months he is making lot of gulping sounds especailly while driking liquids(water and milk).Sometimes while playing he will do.I thought it might be gastric or indegstion.i have consulted doctor he examined throat and said everthing is clear nothing to worry.He has checked whether he is doing in night that time he did nt do.and concluded he is making sounds as habit.He has thumbsucking habit at night.Recently i could observe the sounds at night also.Can u help me whether should we treat this or is he making sounds?
