From the information you conveyed, the condition of the baby opening his mouth and experiencing breathing complaints, and accompanied by tense hands and feet, it is possible that this condition is a form of seizure in the baby.
Other signs that can be found in babies who have seizures can include:
1. Eyes looking up or baby's gaze is empty
2. The foot or hand is pounding
3. Baby's feet or hands look like feet
4. The baby's facial expression, breathing, and heart rate change
5. decreased response to calls or stimuli
At the time of fever, complaints of seizures or muscle stiffness can also occur, this is caused by a response to the brain.
However, you need to consult this condition directly to a pediatric neurologist to be able to determine the cause of this complaint. Thus, the possible causes of this complaint can be identified.
Thus the information that we can convey, also read seizures in babies.
