need an opinion

Lucas literally just started doing this. he is asleep now and has since stopped, but is making this gasping sound. is it something to worry about or is he just playing?

Its hard to say. Could be just new vocalization he is trying out. Does it look like he is having trouble breathing? From the video its hard to tell really. Both my LO have made sounds that have made me wonder and keep checking but if they were breathing fine then I 'tried' not to worry. (The not worring thing is the really really hard part.) Hope its just a new sound.

ya he seems fine and normal otherwise and has stopped now. but right before i took that video he was doing it quite a bit. i thought it sounded like whooping cough but without the coughing, but that could just be me over reacting:p

Does he seem to be breathing okay while he is napping? Like Joy said, it could just be a new sound he is trying out. It is hard to know for sure though. If he keeps doing it then I might call the ped, just to see what they say. But if not then I wouldn't worry.

My phone won't let me play the video but I hope you get it figured out.

It's hard to tell what's going on in the video. It sounds like he's either making a new noise, having difficulty breathing, or he's pooping. Does he have a cold? Did he have a big poop shortly afterward? I hope he's just testing out his vocal abilities.

Yeah its kinda weird. Kinda looks like he is getting hit with a cold breeze. That is sorta the same thing Natalie does if she gets wind in her face like she is holding her breathe and making that weird noise. I think I would call your dr...

ya that is kinda what it sounds like. his breathing is fine otherwise it's not raspy or fast or anything. i am going to call the public health nurse and the pediatrician tomorrow just to get both opinions. maybe i can play the video so they can hear the sound or something.

Erin, he doesn't have a cold unless there is once about to make an appearance. As for pooping, he did poop a couple hours later but still made that noise. He is sleeping now and i havn't heard him make it and he sounds normal. he seems to only be doing it awake.

OMG!!! Tobey was doing the EXACT same thing a couple of weeks ago. He was doing it ALL THE TIME. Even when he was eating or trying to get to sleep. It's not something DS1 ever did. But he just stopped after a couple of days.

I think it was just a new noise to try out. But I'm glad Lucas is doing it too. I'd forgotten about it but at least I know Tobey isn't weird Lol
