My 9 week old DS has started gasping for air occasionally while nursing. Well, usually it happens while he's nursing. He'll be nursing just fine and then all of a sudden pull off and gasp a few times. It sounds like really deep, fast breaths like he's not getting any air and he looks scared. I hold him upright and he's okay after a few gasps, but it really freaks me out. He's been doing this once or twice a day (at random feedings, not same time of day) for the past week or so.
Does anyone else have this happen to them? I'm thinking it's not a big deal, he's just getting overwhelmed or so into nursing he forgets to breathe, but it scares me every time it happens. And it's not exactly choking - he never coughs or anything like that.
