Baby grunts
My 5 months old baby grunts when we make her to stand on our lap she puts lots of pressure on her stomach. Previously this was not the case she will stand and play and even now she stops grunting wen distracted. She started grunting three days back. She feeds well, plays well and she s not constipated too.

Grunting is not a normal phenomenon and your child needs to be examined by a Paediatrician to rule out any problem.

A grunting child cannot be an active/ happy child. It could be benign laryngeal stridor which could be due to lax larynx and it increases in intensity when the child exerts him/herself. If that's the case, it will spontaneously settle down as the child grows. Calcium supplementation can help your child after u get your child checked with a pediatrician.

Hi... Your child needs to be seen by a pediatrician to rule out respiratory problem. Grunting is never a normal phenomenon.

Hello ......Baby may have gas or pressure in his stomach that makes them feel uncomfortable and they haven’t learned yet how to move things through...grunting occasionally can be neglected but with every breath is a sign of respiratory infection... In that case you must take him to doctor
