1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, you need to know that cough is a normal reflex that the body has to expel excess mucus, dirt, or foreign substances that enter the respiratory tract. Cough reflexes are very useful for keeping our airways clean. In babies, it's the same. Coughing in infants can occur due to several possibilities, including:

throat that is too dry (for example because the room is too cold and dry)
choking on milk
reflux of milk and stomach acid (the contents of the stomach come out again into the esophagus for example when the baby burps)
respiratory tract irritation (for example when exposed to cigarette smoke, excessive air pollution, excessive dust)
respiratory tract infections

It is better to pay attention first, whenever the baby has a cough (for example, does the cough of each baby burp, or cough when drinking milk, or cough when someone smokes near the baby, etc.). Also pay attention to whether there are other symptoms such as fever, sputum in the respiratory tract, runny nose, milk drinking disorders, weight gain disorders, etc.


Here are some things you can do first:

Make sure the temperature and humidity of the baby's room is quite comfortable for the baby, if necessary, provide a humidifier in the baby's room
Avoid exposure to cigarettes and air pollution
Make sure you maintain the cleanliness of the baby's room and clean the dust well from your home (including beds, blankets, bolsters, and other objects that are near the baby)
Feed your baby in a higher head position and burp the baby after you have finished breastfeeding
Carry the baby in an upright position for several minutes after breastfeeding

If indeed the baby is experiencing symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, the baby looks sick, the baby chokes every time he drinks milk, there is a growth disorder, immediately take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
