Our 2 month old baby sometimes has yellow snot in her nose? She is sometimes colicky for 2 hours sometimes loud breathing would she have chesty cold?

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. ...Read more

My mother has trouble breathing when she's sleeping. She sometimes faints when laughs and randomly gets sleepy.

Mom needs to see doc: There is a neurological disorder called narcolepsy in which people fall asleep inappropriately, and experience sudden loss of mucle tone with emotional arousal such as hearty laughter. That may cause a falling to the ground, but not true fainting (loss of consciousness). Breathing trouble is not part of narcolepsy. Sleep apnea, more common in obese people, may cause excessive daytime somnolence. ...Read more
