Why does my newborn stop breathing for a few seconds and then her bottom lip quivers?

Periodic breathing: Periodic breathing, where newborns have a brief interruption of breathing for a few seconds, is common in newborns. They will outgrow this over several months. Quivering of the bottom lip may just be an isolated finding that does not sound serious. If it persists or is associated with cyanosis (turning blue) consult your Pediatrician.
