    Well I am just a student but I thought for a child under one the respiration rate is normal if it is between 30-80 and the pulse rate is normal if it is between 100-160. I heard from someone else. I have not had the pediatric part of the nursing program yet. Someone please help us out for sure.

    hey I'm confident that...Respirations 30-40, Pulse 80-160.
    These are normals for a child age 1month-11months. have a good day.
