    I've posted the last few days about the fact I think Harrison has reflux or colic, but now he's started to breathe funny..

    He's grunting with each breath & then he stops for a couple of seconds then starts with the grunting again.

    Is this another sign of reflux or something I should be seriously concerned about?

    I have hv coming at 4pm so should I just wait for her or call nhs direct straight away?

    I'm so worried!!

    You'll have to turn the volume up to max on the vid to hear it x

    It's quite normal for the irratic breathibg pattern and for them to grunt etc due to small airways which can get partially obstructed and make them noisy. Check with hv but im sure he's just got some gunk or a cold. Try not to panic x

    Hi lovely, the link isn't working for me.
    I say go with your instincts and call the nhs line. HV is coming in an hour but that hour will feel like forever to you.x

    But like above says, erratic breathing is very common. Mine had it after around 10 days.xxx

    Sounds similar to how my little girl sounded when she was tiny. She was only 8 days old when I really noticed it was different from my other LO.

    They diagnosed her with a floppy larynx - caused her no problems really except for I think it went hand in hand with reflux as she had this too x

    It sounds like he's snoring or grunting in his sleep.

    As above, erratic breathing especially when asleep is common. This is one of the reasons why its recommended babies sleep in the same room for the first six months, they learn to regulate their own breathing by mimicking ours.
