Infants Aged 2 Months Have Difficulty Breathing Because There Is Mucus In The Respiratory Tract?
Mlm, I want to ask whether the mucus in the child can disappear by itself. The thing is that my child usually tries to find a breath because of the congenital mucus? The word midwife can disappear on its own when a child is 6 or 1 year old, but I feel sorry for my child who is only 2 months old and so my breath usually chills / sounds during sleep so that his sleep is disturbed
Thank you for the question.
Mucus production in the airways can indeed increase naturally in infants, for example due to exposure to dry air, cold temperatures, or excessive crying. Provided that your baby does not appear to have difficulty breathing, no wheezing sounds, no vomiting or difficulty sleeping, his lips and fingers are not bluish, there is no fever, and there are no other more severe complaints, this condition may be harmless and can improve by itself as the baby gets older.
However, it also needs to be understood, that sometimes, accumulation of mucus in the airways can also occur due to other conditions that need to be aware of, for example allergies, irritations, foreign body intrusion, viral or bacterial infections, choking, reflux of stomach acid into the throat, bronchitis, bronchhiolitis, asthma, benign or malignant tumors, immune disorders, and so on.
Therefore, if you feel the complaint is very disturbing your baby, you should still check first to the doctor or pediatrician. That way, can be evaluated, whether the condition is still reasonable, or dangerous and requires further medical treatment. It is not impossible, if the doctor suspects that there is a serious illness, he will recommend that your baby undergo an x-ray examination or other supporting tests.
In the meantime, you can first overcome the condition of your baby by:
Give him ASI frequently, directly from your breast (not through a pacifier) Burp him well after every suckling Don't give babies extra food and drinks other than breast milk before the age of 6 months, unless the doctor directly recommends them Condition the environment so that the surrounding environment the baby is always clean, the air humidity is maintained (for example by using a humidifier water), not too cold (such as by not using air conditioning or excessive fan), free from smoke, dust, animal hair, cigarettes, and other substances that are prone to trigger inflammation in the airways Wash your baby with warm water, then wear clothes that also warm your baby in the morning sun, before 9 o'clock, so that the mucus in the airways dilute. Do not give the baby any medicine without doctor's advice. Hope it helps.
