My 3 week old is breathing hard...?? Help! Amber//Andrew's Mommy// Due August 2; 1 child; Boaz, Alabama 86 posts

My son is 3 weeks old tomorrow and he breathes really hard and fast. He can just be sitting there and you can see his belly going up and down really fast...I was wondering if that is normal? I have tried searching online but all I found is breathing problems right after birth (which they never said anything) If its serious I wanted to go to the Emergency Room as soon as possible, but if its normal I just want something to keep me from worrying. This is my first baby and I dont know what to expect...

Fast, labored breathing: Fluid in the smallest airways (the "alveoli") causes pneumonia, an infection due to a virus or bacteria. Pneumonia causes fast, labored breathing, occasionally cyanosis, a persistent cough, and crackly sounds ("rales") when listened to with a stethoscope.

I found this on a website....he does cough...Im worried now..
