I am a mother of four, and my youngest daughter was born with tracheomalacia, which is a weakness of the windpipe. It makes her breathing very loud. Every pediatrician I have talked to said it will go away on its own as she grows, but with age it seems to be getting worse. At times it sounds like she cannot breathe, she stops breathing, and she has gastro esophageal reflux, which makes her cry a lot. Also, I would say she is slightly developmental delayed. She was born a little early because I developed preeclampsia, so I know this is normal. But she is not to far behind. For example she cannot sit very long supported yet and she is 6 months old. My question to mothers out there is, have you had a child born with this? And if so what were your experiences? Thanks!
