Newborn noises

Can anyone tell me what's normal to expect?
My newborn has silent reflux but sometimes when I lay him down for his nap 30-45 mins after food(with a raised head end of the crib) he sounds like he is gasping for air and squeaking and grunting and gasping for air, his chest doesn't look like it's straining and his breathing rate is normal?! But are the noises normal? I'm terrified as we had a choking episode when he was 6 days old so I don't know what to do?!

I have a 3 month old and from birth she has been a very noisy baby! Grunting, squeaking, almost making a humming noise sometimes, gasping etc.
If I can’t hear her, I panic now but she’s always fine!
I was surprised at how much noise newborn babies make!
I would say it’s quite normal but if you’re worried ask your HV

Newborns in general are loud. However, this time my newborn was incredibly squeaky (and also did the gasping for air) which was all linked to reflux (which is turn was linked to an intolerance to Cow’s Milk Protein) If it continues it might be worth swapping formula / cutting out dairy if breastfeeding to see if this has an impact.
