I'm not looking for "best to call your pediatrician," as I'm already planning to speak with her. Just wondering if anyone has a baby who makes a similarly weird noise.
DD (nearly 5 months old) has been doing this "gasping" thing lately. I'm hesitant to call it a "whoop," but that's sort of what it sounds like... or like when someone has heartburn or reflux and you do that half hiccup/half gasp thing... or when someone gets really upset and crying hard and tries to catch their breath. Sometimes she'll do it just once, sometimes a couple times in a row.
She's not crying, coughing, having trouble breathing, or showing any appearance of having any sort of respiratory illness whatsoever. She does sneeze a bit, but I mostly chalk that up to "normal baby reaction to allergens in the air" and such (my pediatrician has agreed in the past). But this noise she makes just freaks me out a bit!
Thoughts on what it could be? I'm also wondering if it's just her figuring out all the different noises she's able to make... she sure does like to make noise!
Thanks (in advance) for sharing your experiences!
ETA: she used to make this sound most often when she was nursing, but now I'm unable to find any correlation with the noise and something else she's trying to do...
