Handling Pneumonia In Infants Aged 1 Month?
Hello Vania! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Pneumonia is an inflammatory disease of the lung. Babies who have pneumonia are often asked to fast for a while. This is because the tightness conditions experienced by pneumonia make babies more easily choked or the entry of food into the airways. Choking on babies is very dangerous. Adults like us have a cough reflex when choking. The cough reflex serves to expel food or drink from the airways. Because the cough reflex has not yet developed, breast milk that enters the airways cannot be expelled and can be very dangerous for the baby, and can even be life threatening. Follow the advice of the pediatrician. Avoid giving breast milk even if a little before allowed by a doctor. Besides infusion, of course the baby is also given drugs to treat pneumonia. If his condition has improved and he is not overcrowded (determined by the doctor), the doctor will allow the baby to be breastfed again.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
