its so weird that you posted this today. i have a 5 week old ds who has rapid breathing when awake. last night he kinda scared me because he sounded junky and wheezy. we co-sleep and i found that i have to get up and feed him in the glider during the night because that is the only way i will remember to burp him. he has to be burped and when i feed him in bed, i am so tired that i fall asleep and wake up because he is sputtering or crying because he needs to be burped. he is fine when he is sleeping. he looks fine in every way, maybe very slight retractions under his ribs when he is breathing fast.
i sat next to the phone contemplating calling the pedi. i called two days ago and he said he sounded fine but would see him if i wanted to. after last night i thought i should call, but i still haven't because he is back to his normal self today. still breaths fast while awake. we pay out of pocket for all our visits so i am reluctant to go if he is fine.
i don't hear any murmur (i'm embarrassed to say that i am a NICU and have a stethoscope). but i dealt with sick newborns not older babies.
keep us posted on how your little guy is doing. i'm hoping my little one will grow out of it in the next few weeks.
