My 1 month old has problem breathing

Hello,
My 1 month old bab has a problem breathing especially during sleep. his oxygen level goes down and he turned blue couple times. So far I have no idea what's causing it. His heart is ok and he doesnt have reflux. Would you please let me know if you're familiar with this or experienced it with your kid?
Thanks

Better get that baby checked out  now, it could be a septal defect, you need a peditrition to check him out  ASAP, this is not something that you should wait and see about.

I agree. Don't wait. I am 6mo pregnant and my baby has an Atrioventricular Canal defect. From what I have read the baby may not show signs until 8-10 weeks of age. One sign is problems breathing.
