Is it normal for our newborn’s breathing to be irregular at times?
Q: Our newborn seems to be breathing irregularly some of the time. Should we see a doctor?

A: Any time you have a question about the baby’s breathing, you should contact the pediatrician. However, the baby is a small person and can have periodic changes in its breathing pattern. Perhaps the baby changes its breathing pattern during a dream about rocking in her/his new Fisher-Price® swing!
