My lil girl is 2 weeks old today and at times she breaths really heavy. She did it in the hospital but they said it was because she was under the billy light. But she is still doing it. Alot of our family has aksed why she is breathing so heavy. She doesnt do it all the time but it does happen alot. Im starting to get a lil worried.

not sure what's up, but if you are worried about it and if she sleeps in her own bassinet/crib, you could always get an Angelcare monitor at Walmart for about $60. I know it's a little high, but I promise it gave me such a peace of mind at night, not always worried about SIDS. What it does is monitors all movements your baby makes, including breathing. If your baby has no movement for 20 seconds, it sounds the alarm, which sounds similar to a smoke alarm. If you ever did have a SIDS event, it would give you enough time to come to the rescue before it was too late.

If she doesnt sleep with me she sleeps in her swing. I dont feel safe laying her on her back cause she spits up and it chokes her.

yeah, I know they say to do back sleeping, however one of mine had probably 4 or 5 SIDS scares while on his back, so we started letting them sleep on their tummies and haven't had a scare since. I would be much more cautious with tummy sleeping if I didn't have my monitors, though.

(a note for the above: it wasn't an OMG rush him to the hospital SIDS scare, it was just that I guess he'd get into such a deep sleep that he wouldn't breathe for 20, 30 seconds. All we had to do was go in and startle him and he was good again.)

I have a crib wedge but when my DS was younger and had his reflux problem we put 2 in there so he was lying with his head higher

She doesnt gasp. She just breaths really heavy and fast.
