You do not mention what kind of noise your baby makes. If it is a snoring noise she should not be making it as this means her nose is blocked. If she is making a crowing noise this may be due to a problem with her larynx or voice box and again she should not be making a noise. If she makes a noise when breathing every day then it would be best to ask your paediatrician to see your baby.
