Asthma? — The Bump

Asthma?

Is there a board on the bump for asthma? I'm not finding anything. Anyone here have experience in this area with infants?

Re: Asthma?

  • The reason I ask is my LO is making a gasping sound. I'm wondering if it could be asthma or something else. He does have a family history of asthma, so that's always in the back of my mind.

    Gasping & trouble breathing should be evaluated by a doctor.

    However, my daughter started learning to squeal by inhaling in a startling way. It sounded crazy! When in doubt ask your doc, but baby could be starting to inhale to squeal.

  • You are describing it exactly. He's being playful and then he starts this gasping and it's not constant, it's not alarming but concerning. I have a call into our pediatrician. Thank you!
  • Yeah my pedi had a great giggle at me when I brought DD in for the inhale-to-squeal thing. I was embarrassed, but hey, it sounded crazy!
