  • I would take her and have her checked out she may not be getting enough oxygen when she is breathing if she is looking blue

  • I would take her immediately to have her oxygen levels checked! She could be having some serious difficulties.

    Question: Does she cry a lot or very little?

  • I only asked b/c I know that babies who are having a difficult time breathing sometimes dont cry well. Or sometimes cry less.

    My dd had a serious UTI infection when she was a month old and she was having trouble breathing and I never knew!

    It was a serious thing for my dd and I know that with tiny babies sometimes its hard to tell whats going on.

    TAKE her....just to be safe!

  • If your child is any funny color. Yellow, blue, purple then you should take them to the doctor. It may sound like she is breathing fine but that doesn't mean she actually is breathing fine they need to check her oxygen levels in her blood if she is really a blue color.
