My baby girl taken one year yesterday and I sometimes noticed that she breaths with her mouth is that normal?

Hi Bathobile, does you little one have a blocked nose when she does this? When bubs are really little they cannot breathe through their mouths (that's why it is a worry if they have a blocked nose because they struggle to drink) but when they get a little bigger they manage the skill of breathing through both mouth and nose. I wouldn't worry unless you can genuinely see an obstruction in her nose or if she is doing it all the time especially when feeding (eg, having to pause to take breath through her mouth) and then perhaps a trip to the docs might help relieve some of the worry!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
