    Background: Newborns have irregular breathing patterns that concern new parents. They can breathe fast, take long pauses between breaths, and make unusual noises. A newborn takes 30–60 breaths per minute. This can slow down to 20 times per minute while they sleep. At 6 months, babies breathe about 25–40 times per minute. Newborns can also take rapid breaths and then pause for up to 10 s at a time. Aim: The present study aims are to assess the effectiveness of prone and supine position on a respiratory pattern among of neonates with respiratory problems. Materials and Methods: The research design for the study is pre-experimental research design with two group pre-test post-test design. Convenient sampling technique was used to select samples. Semi-structured interview was used to collect demographic data and bio-physiological method was to assess the respiratory pattern such as respiratory rate, respiratory depth, retraction, nasal flaring, and chest in drawing, wheezing, and oxygen saturation. The babies in experimental group were divided into two groups and placed in supine and prone position. After an hour, the respiratory pattern was re-assessed. Results: The study results show that the respiratory pattern variable wheezing had shown a statistically significant difference between the prone and supine position with a Chi- square value of 3.968 which was found to be statistically significant at P < 0.05. This indicates that prone position is more effective than supine position among neonates. Conclusion: Prone position also helps in maintaining respiratory pattern, especially oxygen saturation and helps in prompt recovery of the neonates from respiratory diseases.
