In brief: ?Croup

If she is making the noise when she breathes in, then it sounds like it may be croup.
Croup makes the most awful barky noise like a seal barking, and when babies breath in makes a gasping noise called stridor. If you haven't tried massive humidity, (stand in shower x 10 minutes), try first. If no relief, bundle up and go outside in cold air a few minutes. If she is struggling to breath, er!
