  • You shouldn't worry about it. It's not that they can't breath, it's like a surprise reaction because it's a new feeling for them. When a strong wind hits you in the face you do the same thing even though you don't realize it.

  • And it's not a stupid question. No question is stupid except the one not asked. :-)

  • I don't know... I always wondered the same thing! When my son was a newborn, he would sputter every time the wind hits his face, so we had to cover him up. I was told (by my SO's step-mom) that young babies don't know how to handle the wind, and being exposed to wind could cause gas and stomach pains...? Maybe it's not that they -can't- breathe, but are taking in too much air. We took my 9 month old outside the other day, it was quite windy, he did the sputtering thing again but figured out how to handle it. After that, he was like a pro. He just didn't like the wind in his face... but who does? I'm sure I didn't answer your question, but hey, I contributed. ;)
