Nasal Congestion: You are describing nasal congestion and it is possible the noisy breathing may be caused by that. Clear her secretions to see if that helps her breathing. If her breathing continues to be noisy, if she is working hard to breath, if she has fever or is not feeding well she needs to be seen by her doctor. This does not cause colic. It is possible she may have an ear infection as a cause of her pain.
