Newborns breathe at a much faster rate than adults and even older children. Normal adults take about 12-20 breaths per minute. Most newborns take between 40 and 60 breaths per minute. So if the newborn is breathing faster than adults, that's no cause for concern. But if she is breathing significantly faster than other newborns, then there may be something going on that needs medical attention.
