The main symptom is the stridor that is heard as the baby breathes. It is best heard when a baby breathes in. It can also be heard when the baby breaths out.
The symptoms of congenital laryngeal stridor can be like other health conditions. Make sure your child sees his or her healthcare provider for a diagnosis.
In most cases, congenital laryngeal stridor is a harmless condition that goes away on its own. Although not common, some babies develop severe breathing problems which need treatment. Treatment may include medicines, a hospital stay, or surgery.
Treatment will depend on your baby’s symptoms, age, and general health. It will also depend on how severe the condition is.
