Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If you think your baby is breathing fast please consult your doctor at the earliest possible.

Normally babies in that age group breath around 40 to 50 times a minute. If they cross 60 breaths per minute you should consult your doctor.

Does your baby have any chest indrawing?
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
