Floppy babies are more prone to swallowing difficulty and hence aspiration pneumonia. Floppy baby is a general term and the prognosis depends on which type it is. You can ask for a Frank discussion with the treating doctor.Convey your concern to them .The breathing difficulty can also be a part of hypotonia of respiratory muscles. Good luck God bless Dr Uma
