  • if he's wheezing I would atleast call the dr. wheezing isn't good, but if it's only when he's excited it may not be true wheezing. I'd call.

  • My youngest was hospitalized for respiratpry stuff, but when I brought my twins the first was making the excited breathing habits. My pede said it was normal, but it is always good to ask a dr. when you have concerns.
