Tracheomalacia 7 weeks old loud loud breathing?

My doctor told me my daughter most likely has tracheomalacia he didnt try to make sure just said. but im wondering if its common for babies to be so loud just seems like ive never heard one be so loud before. its not her grunting when she was born her cord was so tight around her neck we almost lost her. idk if that has anything to do with it. but hold your breath and try to breath in from your mouth sounds aweful like she cant breath but she can just loud its not alll the time but some. just scary

  • After a bit of research it doesn't seem as if the cord is the cause.
    I had a similar situation with the cord and two of mine- and they breathed normally
