Newborn Breathing Conditions Symptoms
Symptoms of newborn breathing conditions usually happen at birth or within the first few hours that follow. Common warning signs include:
- Irregular breathing or heart rate (fast or slow)
- Flaring of the nostrils with each breath
- Bluish tone to a baby’s skin and lips
- Pulling inward of the muscles between the ribs when breathing
If your baby shows signs of distress, your child’s provider will do tests to help diagnose a newborn breathing condition.
