Overcoming Cough With Phlegm In Babies 2.5 Months?
In the morning, I want to ask. R nMy child, a 2.5 month old baby, coughs with phlegm without fever, the midwife was given cough syrup and vitamins but the cough has not subsided, r nAnd how does the baby steam at home r n yes.
From the information you have conveyed, independent evaporation needs to pay attention to the risk of hot temperatures and also the need for oxygen to the length of time to give baby steam. So that giving steam to babies requires special attention while doing it.
To help thin out phlegm and relieve breathing, safe evaporation can be done using a medical device or medical devices that are safer and indicated for the treatment of respiratory disorders, such as an over the counter nebulizer (without drugs). So that by using this nebulizser, safety in the care of this baby's complaints can still be considered. However, for the early stages of monitoring and education the use of a nebulizer must also be done.
And if you have to use conventional steam, then you can use warm water in a tub, lined with a towel, which covers the baby and you in it, with part of the area on the right or left side still open. You can steam every 5 minutes, then take a break to get some fresh air, and repeat about 3 times in one session. You can do this 3 times a day. Then evaluate the 6 times use of evaporation at home, regarding its effectiveness and the development of your baby's complaints.
So that if your baby's complaints are getting more and more annoying, you should consult directly with your family doctor or a pediatrician.
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
