1wk old baby was sleeping n was completely limp. Seemed to be breathing ok but was hard to wake up. He woke up completly 30min later he was ok. Worry?

6 months baby breathing noisily for about a month especialhen he is breast feeding and sleeping. Should i worry?
Nasal breathing: Infants at 6m are dependent on their nose most of their air exchange.
