This is a study to evaluate thermal imaging as a technology to monitor the normal clearing of amniotic fluid from healthy newborns and newborns suspected of having a condition called transient tachypnea of the newborn, or TTN. Thermal images are taken using an imaging device that attaches to an iPhone. This device, commercially known as FLIR ONE, creates a non-identifiable image based on the heat pattern of an object. In this case, the object is a child's chest and back. It does not emit any radiation like an x-ray does.


Inclusion Criteria (healthy and suspected TTN babies): - Full term (greater than or equal to 37 weeks gestation) - less than 3 days old - born via normal vaginal delivery Inclusion Criteria (only for suspected TTN babies): - neonatologist assesses baby as possibly having TTN - chest x-ray done as part of evaluation for TTN - no other significant co-morbid conditions present Exclusion Criteria: - parents do not consent to have baby participate
