    At least you can get your LO to burp! That's good, I have the opposite problem sometimes.

    I'm not sure about the grunting, but if your LO is squeaking, make sure your pediatrician / FP gets a chance to hear it at your next appointment. Lots of newborns squeak, but sometimes stridor (the medical term for squeaking / other noises when they breathe) can be an indication of a bigger problem. Our little guy squeaked when he was sleeping, and also when he was nursing or crying. At first, we thought our LO had laryngomalacia (pretty common - and most kids outgrow it with no serious problems), but he actually had a hemangioma in his larynx. We ended up seeing a pulmonologist and an ENT before it was diagnosed, but I'm so glad we found out.

    I don't want to scare you, but just make sure you let someone who can hear the difference help you make sure there's nothing for you to be concerned about.
