Baby breathes hard when breastfeeding: what's wrong?

Nothing is wrong. Your baby is just working on eating and breathing and sometimes that can be hard work. Some babies are use to breathing out of their mouth but have to breath from their nose when eating. Sometimes the milk is coming out really fast and your baby is trying to keep swallowing that milk and has to breath fast to get breathing in. It is normal and nothing to worry about.

    Babies breathe funny even when they aren't breast feeding. They are brand new to the world and have to get used to the idea of breathing all the time. Add nursing into the mix, and it makes the new skill that much more difficult!
      This is a great post... something I would have loved to have reference to when I was BFeeding!
