Stridors and Laryngomalacia in Babies

So, Tucker Jack has had a ratteling w/ his breathing since being born March 27, the docs at first brushed it off as being allergies and such ect. but now after chest XRays were off the Childerens Hospital to see a pediatric Pulmonologist. Id like to know what happens at this visit, and just what everyone elses expierences have been w/ this. In the docs words other than this hes healthy he also according to the doc has too much drool. Anything is always welcomed. Thanks
