Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There could be less oxygen getting in his blood during sleep. It is not normal at this age. You need to show him to the Paediatrician to get him thoroughly examined and the cause found. He may be having infection in the chest or a problem in the blood, heart as possible cause.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. Your baby's body is getting less supply of oxygen during the sleep. It could be due to sleep apnoea. It is a serious condition and you should take your baby immediately to pediatrician. Your baby might need to be admitted to hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Wish him good health and speedy recovery.

I hope he is ok. Take him to the dr. Heaven forbid something happen to him. Sounds like lack of oxygen. The dr. Should be monitoring him in case he has sleep apnea or is prone to sids. Hope he is ok
