My baby boy was born St. Patricks Day this year. He was 3 weeks early. When he was born he had jaundice (normal for him being early) and some respiratory distress minor enough for him to be okay but they did keep him in NICU all night and most of the next morning. They said that he seemed to be having a little difficulty breathing.
Well, he went home when I did but I still notice from time to time you can hear him breathing and it doesn't sound like my girls did. He sounds like he may sometimes be having just the slightest inability to get a complete breath.
The doctor knows about the respiratory distress from birth, so should I just let them do what they do everytime they do his check up's and know that they are doing what is best for him or should I ask to have him checked?

You should always mention any questions you have. You want to keep breastfeeding as long as possible. Breastfeeding may help prevent asthma (studies have mixed results). It does decrease infections and that is great for babies and toddlers with asthma. When they are sick they can breastfeed and that helps them feel better and get better quicker.
