My daughter was born at 36 weeks and didn't have any problems breathing when she was born but then when she was 3 weeks old she started breathing really loud. We took her to the doctor thinking that she might have ashma. Well we find out that no she has a condition were her larnyx isn't strong enough to stay open. She has tyrned blue quite a few times. Our ped. sent us to a specialist who then said that she was perfectly fine and that she didn't have that condition. I went back to the Ped. and she sent us to another specialist because she said it is not normal for a child to be breathing sooo loud and to stop breathing sometimes as well as turn blue sometimes. The new specialist says that yes so does have that condition and wants to do surgery on her. She wants to take a scope down to look at her larnyx, windpipe, as well as lungs to make sure that there's nothing else going on. There's nothing that can really be done about her condition except watch her closely and hook her up to this special monitor that monitors her breathing. My question is have any of your preemies have this condition or had to have this surgery?
