update and worried

I had to be induced and I gave birth to annabella on 20 of jan and now idk what's going on. In the past 6 days I have got maybe 5 hours of sleep total. What's going on with annabella is she has came down with a dry couch and her doctor doesn't know why she has it. Sometimes it sounds like her nose is stuffed or runny and when she sleeps she gasp for air every know and then and when I say she gasps I mean she quits breathing and gasps for air when she is sleeping. Her doctor says that its normal but I know that's not normal. She also snores and when she is sleeping on her back she chokes on he own spit or drool. She sleeps on he side naturally but when the doctor told us no she needs to be on her back we did that and she started to choke. She doesn't want to sleep h alf the time because she will fight and stay up for about 4 or 5 hours at a time. And sleeps for maybe 2 or3 hours. I am really worried. I don't think any of this is normal. Or it could be I'm just worring way to much because she is my first child. And her doctor said that everything she is going through is normal. Has anybody ever had these problems with their bundles of joys? Besides all that she is great I love being a mother for the most part. Sometimes it is really hard for me to even hold her but I'm working on tryinhg not to feel like that because she needs me and I can't do that to her. And I'm doing ok just relaxing and trying to learn how to be a mom

My daughter does all those things. She doesn't sleep anywhere but on my chest or in my arms so we cosleep. Otherwise I'd never sleep. She sounds stuffy a lot and snores but he pedi says she'll grow out of it around 2 months.  And sometimes she gasps for air and it is scary but it's her body learning to regulate breathing. Keep mentioning things to the doc if you're worried but trust what they say.

Oh and my daughter was also born jan 20th!
