Causes Of Baby Hernia Age 1 Month?
can a 1-month-old baby boy who is positioned half-sitting on a pillow while burping cause long-term hernias? Because my friend’s child hernia aged 9 months because it is said to be often seated
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many types of hernias, the most common is a hernia that occurs associated with weakness of the abdominal cavity wall, causing the intestine to drop out, for example inguinal hernia, umbilical hernia, or scrotal hernia. Not yet clear the exact cause of hernias. However, many experts believe that this condition occurs due to weakness of the innate abdominal cavity wall gap, increased pressure in the abdominal cavity (for example due to obesity, pregnancy, cough or chronic constipation), history of premature birth or LBW (low birth weight baby), aging, as well as certain genetic conditions.
Positioning the baby for a month and a half sitting can indeed make it easier to burp. But if you leave your baby in this position for too long, then the body can feel uncomfortable so that (pain, cramps) he will become more fussy. There are no specific studies that prove that the baby's sitting position like this can increase the risk of experiencing hernias in the future. However, high pressure in the abdominal cavity due to improper sitting position might make the condition worse, especially if your baby basically already has a hernia risk factor as mentioned above. Therefore, if you want to burp the baby, it is safer to position your baby on his shoulders or thighs, then gently pat his back for 5 to 15 minutes until he belches. In this way, the baby is not easily bloated, spit up, and his body feels more comfortable.
Hope this helps ...
