Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Can you be clear, how old is your baby now? Did the complaint appear at birth or recently? What is the frequency of breathing? Does he look crowded, pale, bluish, weak, or experiencing other complaints?
The sound of baby breathing like snoring (grok-grok, hoarse) can indeed cause its own concerns. In fact, you need to know, that this condition is actually not always dangerous. This additional breath sounds can occur due to increased production of mucus in the baby's respiratory tract, for example due to the influence of cold weather, exposure to pollution, pollen, smoke, or other respiratory tract irritants. This increased mucus production is a form of immune system to prevent the entry of harmful foreign particles into the deeper respiratory tract. Mucus that accumulates in the airways, especially this throat, can also trigger gag reflex (gag reflex), so the baby looks nauseous like wanting to vomit.
In general, you need to be aware that your baby's complaints are dangerous when you find the following signs:
Baby's breathing is fast more than 40 times per minute Baby looks pale, bluish Retraction of additional breath muscles occurs, for example in the nostrils, neck, ribs, and abdomen. Babies look weak, lazy suckling, often drowsy Babies experience fever, vomiting, and complaints other severe If there is one or more of these danger signs that appear in your child, you should not be reluctant to check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician, right? This condition could be a sign of a disease, such as ISPA (acute respiratory infection) , allergies, asthma, aspirations (foreign body choking into the respiratory tract), and so on. Proper handling needs to be done to prevent the risk of dangerous complications. It could also, the doctor recommends supporting tests, such as X-rays, laboratory tests, oxygen testing, and so on.
What you should do now:
If your baby is less than 6 months old, only feed him breast milk, can be directly breastfed, or with the right media (other than pacifiers, such as a spoon or cup feeder) Avoid breastfeeding the baby while lying down, position the baby's head and chest higher than his stomach After breastfeeding, burp the baby If the baby is more than 6 months old, balance breastfeeding with healthy, nutritionally rich foods. Avoid your baby from excessive cold exposure, smoke, dust, cigarettes, or other pollutants. Use a humidifier if possible Keep the environment around the baby You are always clean, including diligently washing your baby's hands, changing curtains and sprays, and cleaning toys and objects around the baby periodically Dry the baby in the morning (before 9 o'clock) in a room that is entered by sunlight so that mucus in the airways are melting. Don't carelessly give medicines to the baby. Hope it helps.
