Neonates or infants under the age of 28 days generally have bodily functions that are not yet perfect. But over time the age of the function of the body parts will continue to increase and develop.
Crying is a form of communication between the baby and other people. Hoarseness that occurs when a baby cries can be caused by various causes, including:
Foreign body in the throat
Inflammation of the throat tract
Respiratory tract infections
Choking generally occurs frequently in infants, especially newborns who are learning to breastfeed. Poor baby's position when breastfeeding can also trigger the condition. If hoarseness is not accompanied by other significant symptoms, such as coughing, runny nose, fever, nausea, vomiting, crying continuously for no apparent reason, then you don't need to worry. Possible effects of throat irritation after choking, as well as the result of too much crying can trigger the vocal cords produce hoarseness in babies.
If no other symptoms are found, just give more fluids with breast milk, improve the position while breastfeeding and help the baby to be able to sleep calmly and comfortably. Hoarseness can improve on its own if no other signs and symptoms are found.
Normal breathing of newborns is faster, which ranges from 40 - 60 times per minute. The number of breaths per minute will decrease with age. When entering the age of 1 year, the average baby will breathe 20-30 times per minute. Shortness of breath in infants is often characterized by an increased frequency of breathing (more than 50 or 60 times per minute depending on the baby's age) and other significant symptoms are found.
If you are still concerned about the condition of your child, we recommend that you conduct an examination directly to a pediatrician so that a thorough evaluation can be done.
