Cough Medicine In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Hello … my baby just arrived in 22 weeks … is it normal for babies to cough sometimes? Cough occasionally … not often … Is there a problem ?? And also not chapters all day … do you need to pay attention ??
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is natural for babies to cough occasionally, which can occur due to dust, pollution, smoke or invisible mites floating around. A coughing baby can also choke on the milk he is drinking. New coughs are a concern if often, accompanied by fever, the child looks short, weak, breathing sounds, blue skin or other conditions that make him look sick. But if you only cough occasionally and irregularly, and no other symptoms appear, it should disappear by itself and you don't need to worry too much.
Then regarding BAB, BAB baby is not the same as an adult. They do not have to be once a day routinely, especially those who are still in the range of 0-6 months. For babies of this age range and consume exclusive breastfeeding, even defecating once a week is still considered normal. Rarely new BAB is considered abnormal if more than 2 weeks, or up to a week, even if it does not consume breast milk or have consumed complementary feeding, accompanied by hard stools, small and round, there is blood, the baby looks straining or crying when defecating. If this is the case, you should immediately check your child at the pediatrician to do a history, physical examination and further handling. But if you do not defecate all day, so far it is not a sign of an abnormality. So, hopefully answering your question.
