How To Add A 4 Month Old Baby BB?
Good night, I want to ask, is it normal for the baby to sweat excessively until the clothes and sprey get wet while he sleeps? And is it difficult to gain weight? Is there a factor in the frequent emitting of gas that has a pungent odor?
Hello Rahmawanti, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Babies sweating during sleep are normal. Babies sweat more easily than adults because the nervous system in the baby's body is not fully developed, and the baby's sleep cycle is in a very deep sleep state, so that it produces more sweat when asleep than adults.
Normally babies will not sweat excessively if it is in cold temperatures. There are several diseases that can cause babies to sweat that is not normal, such as:
Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), with symptoms of excessive sweating, fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, irregular heartbeat, breathing feels fast and short, skin becomes bluish, clubbing fingers (clubbing fingers), and swelling in body tissues or organs.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition when the body is sweating excessively from sweat that is supposed to maintain normal body temperature.
Sleep apnea. A sudden stopping breath for at least 20 seconds
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is a diagnosis given when a child under the age of one dies suddenly with an exact cause cannot be found. This condition can be caused by excessive heat usually during sleep at night, which makes the baby fall into his deepest sleep until it is difficult to wake up or has the possibility of not being able to be reawakened.
Babies who consume breast milk usually will not emit odorous gas. Infants emit a pungent gas that is one sign of lactose intolerance from formula milk. But it should also be remembered that smelly baby farts are not always a sign of health problems. If the baby seems calm and does not show any symptoms, it may be normal for the smelly baby to fart. However, if accompanied by symptoms of fever, fuss, no bowel movements, vomiting, and bloating, then immediately check your baby to a pediatrician to be able to do a complete examination, such as question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations if necessary, so that treatment can be given which is according to your baby's diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Sleep your baby in the supine position
Avoid using beds that are thick and too soft. Do not also leave a soft pillow or toy in the baby crib.
Don't make your baby's room temperature too hot
Give baby clothes that are able to keep body temperature warm, without having to be wrapped again with additional cloth or blankets. Also avoid covering the baby's head with any objects.
Make sure your child gets enough nutrition
Maintain the cleanliness of your baby's food, drinks and cutlery to prevent bacterial contamination
Make sure milk and food do not make your baby allergic
Bathe your baby regularly every day
Prioritize breastfeeding over formula milk until a minimum of 6 months old baby
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
