Why does my infant grunt while sleeping and now eating?

Why does my infant grunt while sleeping and now eating?

Grunting: Grunting if true, is a sign of respiratory distress in infants. By grunting, infants are applying brakes to their exhalation so that the lungs do not completely empty their air.

My 6months old baby is not saying any vowels only grunts and squils, is this a problem? What can I do?

My 6months old baby is not saying any vowels only grunts and squils, is this a problem? What can I do?

Wait for it: At 6 months that is normal. Turn off the tv and talk to your baby. Read to your baby. Your baby will watch and try to imitate the movements of your mouth and even try to feel your tongue and experiment making sounds. When he/she makes a sound you like you sounding approval will encourage more of the same. ...Read more

My three month old grunts all the time. Sounds like sling blade. He doesn't appear to b in discomfort. He has been doing this since birth. Why?

Airway Noise: If child has no symptoms of respiratory distress/difficulty, consider abnormalities of the upper airway. Tracheomalacia is increased "floppiness" in upper airway that can cause increased noise especially with inspiration, worse when crying or breathing hard. Usually improves w/ no treatment as child grows. Also consider: vocal chord paralysis, choanal atresia/stenosis, subglotti stenosis. ...Read more

My baby is 2 weeks and I m breastfeeding. He is doing well but does a lot of grunting. Should I be concerned?

Babies own us: Newborns have no prior training on how to fit into a polite society.They are full of grunts, squeaks, burps and other noises that have no significance.Grunting does not mean they are constipated, and some actually use tightening their breathing muscle to help digestion (grunts/farts and hard tummy wall).Enjoy the symphony, some day you will wish you could go back in time and re-live it. ...Read more

A normal baby....: ...Who is breast fed can have a bm every time you feed him or once a week or anything in between. Babies grunt, turn red and sometimes cry when they try to poop. This is normal. They have to learn how to use stomach muscles to push it out, just like they have to learn to use arms and legs. As long as the poop, when it finally come out, is soft, you have nothing to worry about. ...Read more
