Infant asthma or just play?

This is likely jumping the gun here, but I need to ask. Her peds office is closed for lunch right now, but I'm going to give them a ring when the re-open.

Emily has become much more vocal lately...playing around with her voice and "talking" a lot. There's one noise she makes that concerns me. When she breathes in sometimes, it sounds like someone who's trying to catch their breath---like a gasp for air. She's normally playing when she does this. I can't figure out if she's just making that noise because she figured out how to make it and thinks it's funny, or if there's a real issue.

So, I WILL be calling the doctor's office shortly, but do any of your kiddos do this (she's 5mo)? Does anyone have a child who has asthma? What did it sound like when they were babies?

Sounds like what Ella did when she was about that age, discovering she "could" make that funny noise.
I would call the ped anyway, since my 8 year old does have asthma and it is not anything to play with, or drive yourself crazy wondering about.
