Breath In 5-month-old Baby Sounds?
Good afternoon, I want to ask my child from a baby 0 months until now 5 Months on the road 6 why does his breath always sound like a frog like that … Krok Krok Krok .. That’s why well, then it still can’t lie on its side, it’s not tilted yet. What are the factors because my child is a Premature Baby? My child was born 8 months BB2,1 TB44cm … Thank you for the time …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The sound of a baby's breathing that sounds grok-grok actually not always dangerous. It may be that the sound of additional breath arises purely due to increased production of phlegm in his throat, for example due to exposure to ambient temperatures that are dry, dusty, cold, excessive crying, or also exposure to smoke and pollution. Your baby who has a history of being born prematurely with LBW is indeed more at risk of experiencing this complaint because his body's immune system is still relatively weak and cough reflexes and swallowing is also not optimal. Provided that these complaints do not make your baby fever, vomiting, coughing, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, disturbed sleep, or become more fussy due to feeling uncomfortable, often this condition does not need to worry. As we get older, generally these complaints will disappear by itself. You can try to resolve the complaint with the following trick:
Feed your baby breast milk, avoid breastfeeding with a pacifier and breastfeed the baby while lying down so as to minimize the risk of aspiration (choking milk into the airway) because this can also make the baby's breathing become grok-grok
Also give your baby extra nutritious MPASI after the age of even six months so that the endurance of his body is always excellent
Condition the environment around the baby to be clean, not too cold, use humidifer water, not dusty, away from smoke (including cigarette smoke) and pollution
If you observe your baby is allergic to certain substances, keep them away from the allergen
Do not carelessly give any medicine to babies without a prescription from a doctor
As for your baby who has not been able to tilt and bend his body does not always indicate a dangerous condition. Because they are born prematurely, often the baby's development is rather slow compared to other babies of the same age. If your baby has been able to hold his head up to more than 60 degrees and he is able to last a long time when it is faced down, chances are the condition is still reasonable.
You need to be more vigilant if you find signs of danger of respiratory distress as mentioned above. You also need to have your baby checked by a doctor or pediatrician if you find it unable to face down and sit alone at the age of 9 months or more. Because, in rare conditions, the sound of bad breath can also indicate an allergy, irritation, immune disorders, to infections in the respiratory tract. Meanwhile, motor development delays can also occur due to musculoskeletal disorders, cognitive disorders, lack of stimulation, or many other factors that need further management.
Hope this helps ...
