  • I do remember those days of loud breathing coming from my newborn! It's normal. Did they give you a nose suction thing? If so, suction his nose to keep his nose clear.

  • babies make all kinds of long as the baby is breathing properly and not choking then I wouldnt be too concerned.

  • Mine did that and he ended uo having breathing issues. Bring this issue back up to their attention. Remember... you are NOT too paranoid. Anytime something like this comes up it is your baby. :)

  • my little man made gasping noises and I worried because I have asthma but I called the ped.' and they said so long as he was breathing normally and not choking he would be just fine, keep an eye on him, blah blah blah. I think babies just make crazy noises. Though I would bring it back to attention to her doc. whether she was in a hurry or not is irrelevant, this is your kid and that's what matters the most :]

  • Congrats on your baby!! My baby did that noise and lot of other noises since birth and he did it less and less frequently until he didn't do it anymore! He is perfectly fine, nine weeks old now. But if you are worried about it just ask his doctor!!!
