"Weird"?: It might be surprising, if you're not expecting a "whoop" to come out of you when it does -- and could possibly feel weird. The question is whether these are voluntary "whoops", which can express joy or excitement, or involuntary ones. If it's the latter, it may be a type of tic disorder. And if this troubles you, you could consult with your primary care doctor, or a psychiatrist. Good luck. ...Read more

My 6 week old daughter has been making a whooping sound since birth, mainly when she gets excited. No coughing is involved. But is this normal?
Rubbery airways: Infants have airways that are very flexible that become stiffer as they age. In some this is quite noticeable, particularly if excited as they draw air in and vibrate the walls. The squeak or croup can increase after birth as the become more active but tends to fade after 6 mo. An evaluation by an ENT that can visualize the airway can confirm the issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My one week old daughter just coughed should I be concerned? It didn't have a whooping sound nor did it sound like a smokers cough. No high temperature
Babies cough: And sneeze, and make all kinds of noises. I understand, especially with new parents, that anything out of the ordinary can be scary, but a cough can occur with a temporary aspiration of saliva. If it is persistent, if the baby has a temperature, if there are breathing problems, then see your pediatrician. If not, enjoy your baby more and worry less! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is a gasp and when is it a concern. She doesn't stop breathing at night; will gasp kind of like in the whooping cough cemercial. No cough with it.?
Probably benign: I assume you are referring to a small child. The cause of this may vary with age. Pauses and sighs are common during sleep and not concerning. High pitched breathing noises on breathing in may occur in infants with acid reflux. I would recommend that you try and capture a video on your phone and bring it to your child's pediatrician. Red flags would be problems growing and labored breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
