Crashing your ddc because I was in a similar situation in June. What kind of tests have they done? My daughter ended up having a minor congenital heart defect that fixed itself by 6 weeks. But when she was born the shunting (through a hole in her ventricle) was putting strain on her lungs and causing her to breathe rapidly. They found her problem with a chest xray and a detailed echocardiogram. She also had a loud murmur from birth.
A disorder called transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is fairly common and usually goes away on its own. That's another possibility.
