  • what you might want to try is recording how she's sounding when that happens and bring it to the doc and have the doc listen to it.

  • FInd a different doctor. NEVER mess around when someone is having trouble breathing.

  • sounds like our DD 3months old, doctor says as long as there's no fever and she's eating don't worry. But she struggles a bit at night at I feel so bad, we put saline drops in her nose and suck out what we can. There was RSV going around her daycare and I think that's what started it. But for you, do you think it could be allergies?

  • I would video or record it somehow. ANd, have they looked at her tonsils? Enlarged tonsils could cause that, too. If you are not getting the help you need, see a different doctor, or take her to an Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist. They know more about the breathing type of stuff.

    My daughter has been having breathing problems since last September, when she had a random virus. The ENT is now following her and helping her . . .
