My boy is 5 weeks old and he started gruntting while he sleep when he was about 2 weeks old. He did not sleep long and while he sleep he make a noise or he grunt a lot and make his face red. Is this normal for baby? Please help me. P/s he seems to be better if I let him sleep next to me or if I hold him while he sleep, he is quite.

I have a 2 month old baby, my husband and I put her on oxygen. Due to she would grunt or just hold her breath. She seemed so better when she slept on my chest or felt me breathing. I would demand a sleep test for your baby, but this means you may not be able to hold him while he is asleep.
