Evening, I want to ask? I just gave birth, my child is only 7 days old, but I just noticed that if his heartburn is deep, what effect does it have?

Hi Eny,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are 2 types of breathing, namely chest breathing and abdominal breathing. In infants, abdominal breathing is generally more dominant than chest breathing. In this type of breathing, the diaphragm muscle contracts predominantly so that it flattens out and decreases the pressure in the chest cavity to allow air from outside to enter the lung cavity (inspiration). On the other hand, during expiration, the diaphragm muscle relaxes so that it bends and increases the pressure in the chest cavity which causes air to be exhaled.


This abdominal breathing can make the stomach appear bulging on inspiration and the chest (including near the solar plexus) can appear slightly convex. This condition may be the underlying complaint of your baby.


It could also be that the appearance of a hollow in your baby's solar plexus is the result of excessive breathing, for example when the baby is short of breath. In this condition, this hollow in the gut occurs due to retration. Not only that, but this respiratory muscle retraction can also be observed from the prominent chest bones, the curved supraclavicular muscles, and the flared nostrils. You can also observe these signs of shortness of breath from rapid breathing, additional breath sounds (such as grok-grok or wheezing), and babies who appear tired, pale, weak, or bluish.


If this condition is your baby's experience, we recommend that you get it checked directly by a doctor or pediatrician for further evaluation. Many conditions can cause shortness of breath in children, ranging from allergies, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, congenital heart disease, acid-base balance disorders, and so on. Each of these conditions can generally be identified by doctors based on direct examination, assisted by several supporting tests, for example laboratory tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. These various examinations are also important for their function to identify other possible conditions that can make the baby's heartburn appear convex while breathing, for example, rib fractures, fibrosis, congenital rib disorders, emphysema, tumors, and so on.


In the meantime, you shouldn't panic yet. Give your baby breast milk to reduce the risk of allergies and inflammation of the respiratory tract. Both of these conditions can contribute to worsening of shortness of breath in babies. Also, make sure that the environment in which your baby lives is clean, dust-free, well-lit and well-ventilated. Avoid giving drugs, steam, massage, or other careless handling to babies without first consulting a doctor.


Hope it helps ..
