My baby is 2 mnths old he always breathes as if he has run a marathon especially if he has a wind ... Paed put him on Isomil as he had an allergic reaction to NAN (eczema ).........He is on Zyrtec drops as well..................He snores alot ..........

Is this breathing normal?

Your son's breathing is not normal. In particular he should not be snoring. He must have some form of nasal blockage, possibly enlarged adenoids. Please ask your paediarician to refer you to an ENT specialist as your baby is snoring.
