Fast breathing in my 6 week old preemie

Jun 1st, 2015, 23:49 PM   #1
 
Hello all
my preemie is 6 weeks old after delivering at 32+6. We've been home for just over a week and everything is going well except I'm worried about her breathing.
She seems to breath really quickly sometimes and her tummy goes up and down rather than her ribs and it looks like she's making a real effort to breathe.
anyone experienced this or can reassure me its normal?

Has she always done this or is it a recent thing? Did she need help with her breathing in hospital at all? My son was a lot earlier but the doctors always told us if there's anything at all out of the ordinary, don't take any chances, get then checked out. Do you have a community nurse come out to you?xx

She's coming out today. She was only on cpap for 24 hours. I can't decide if its normal for her or if its become worse over the last few days
