I forgot what it is called - but my DS has a condition where is "voice box" is soft and that is what is making him have very raspy voice sounding breathing. His "voice box" should harden by his 1st birthday. His doctor said he sees about 2 or 3 children a YEAR with this :( He said it is rare, but sometimes the "voice box" never hardens and that person has very raspy breathing as an adult. ALSO...It looks like my DS who is two months is starting to cut his two front teeth!!! WHAT?!??? My DD had a tooth at three months...but not TWO and in the front! this normal?

I have never heard of this, but my ds, who is almost 5 months old usually sounds a bit "raspy" in the evening. I aske dmy dr. about it several weeks ago, & he said not to worry about it. However, I have recently come to realize that my dr. may not have any idea what he is talking about...ever! I am in the process of switching pedi's, I will definitley ask them!

Hi. My son (who is 1 today!) was born with a soft voice box. It's called laryngo mylacia (sp?) and the way he was breathing was called strider. We too were told it would harden and become normal by his first birthday and they were right. He actually outgrew it a couple of months ago. I kinda miss hearing him breath at night because it a__sured me he was ok!

Oh, I wanted to add. It was terrible when he was first born. I eventually took him to a specialist who told me that it was laryngo mylacia. No one wanted to believe me at first because it is so unheard of. I don't know how many times I had to explain to people that no, he didn't have asthma or no, he doesn't have a cold! Anyway, just bear with it. It will progressively get better.

Yes! it's trachomalacia thank you!
