my DS is a week old and I've noticed when he's sleeping he wheels a few times as if he can't get his breath. if i sit him up it stops. he feeds fine and it doesn't seem to bother him when it happens.

does this sound normal? is he just gettin used to breathing??

Because he's so teeny I'd get him checked out by a hcp - could you call the maternity ward?

Babies do make lots of strange noises though! Congratulations - Christmas newborns are lovely grin mine is 6 now shock

My son was born with a laryngeal stridor. You could hear him breathing which was a worry but we were told he would grow out of it and he has. He's now 13. This may be a possibility?
