Laryngomalacia is a rather common cause of croup with noisy breathing in newborns or very young infants. It is due to a temporary softening of the cartilage of the voice box or larynx in the baby's upper airway. This condition usually disappears by itself without any problem and the noisy breathing then stops.This usually happens before the child is 18 months old.
