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?

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 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??
