Baby Breathes Loud While Sleeping
Depends on age/posit: In the first 6m the neck is so short the baby must hold the head up & back to drop the jaw & mouth breathe. This is not a natural position so babies seldom sleep well.The growth of the neck by about 2-3 cm over that time allows the head to be neutral with the jaw open. In early infancy the nose must be clear to breathe without a struggle. ...Read more

Doing this between 1-4 mos. Helps her consolidate sleep & avoids " trained night crying" at 6 months & older. ...Read more

My 4 week baby breath so hard when she drinks milk , it all happens while she is drinking during sleep?
