A common symptom you may notice in infants is the occurrence of stridor breathing sounds. You'll notice this symptom when the tissues surrounding the larynx collapse. It's common in newborns even if they don't have any other health concerns. The stridor sound manifests as a rapid and low-pitched sound you'll hear as the baby breathes in. Usually, the condition may develop some time after birth. In most cases, it doesn't require treatment since it goes away as the baby matures. By the time the baby reached 18 months, the symptom may have already disappeared. If not, then it's important to consult with a doctor and have your baby checked.
