I have a 5 week old. He will gasp for air like he has just came up from under water at least that is what it sounds like. IS this normal? i can't get an appt untill tomorrow. He has been doing it for awhile He does have thrush. my sisters kids did that and she was told it was because they had a diaper rash. He will wake out of a sleep and do iit or during a feeding. This is scary when he does it. I cant really find anything about it. Any advice???

My pediatrician told me it was fine. They might try to tell you it's acid reflux, thats what they told me but it's not. My daughter is 3months old & she still does it. It was VERY frequent & scary when she was first born. They say almost all baby's do it. But talk to them about it just in case.
