My son makes this gasping sound every now and again. Do any of your babies do this? My mother-in-law says it is normal but my boyfriend had really bad asthma as a child so I know him and I are a little worried of Tiago having it too
Avery does something like that. She'll be sleeping and suddenly do this thing with like 5-10 short fast gasping breaths in a row and then back to normal. I just assume it's normal. As long as the breathing goes back to normal on its own I wouldn't worry. Asthma doesn't stop on its own. The breathing would be labored and noisy.
Claire totally does that, and it scared the absolute bejeezus out of me the first few times. It sounds like she stops breathing for a bit, and then all of the sudden does this huge wheezy gasp in when she remembers to breathe again.
I asked her doctor about it, and she says it's totally normal. Still, it's freakin' scary.
