Overcoming The Baby Who Swallowed The Amniotic Fluid During Childbirth And Only Cried Briefly?
Doctor night. On the 2nd day yesterday at 06.24 in the morning I was born, but because the process of my childbirth was late in the mouth of the uterus, my midwife said, I swallowed her water (she said if green was dangerous, but my amniotic fluid was not too dangerous, she said) my child was able to cry, cleaned pissing out and pooping. After that my son was taken to the incubator room with a hose because he said his breathing was interrupted. And this is already 2 nights. I still can’t bring it home to be given breast milk. Honestly, I am sad to see my child, I am afraid that my breast milk will also be stopped because it is not being breastfed by my baby. What can I say to the clerk so that my child can be taken away to be given breast milk.😭😭 thank you
Hello Risnawati, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the conditions experienced by your child? Interference with newborn breathing can be caused by:
transient tachypnea of newborn, the baby's respiratory condition which becomes faster in infants that lasts temporarily due to absorption of fluid in the lungs that lasts longer after the baby is born. The presence of fluid in the lungs makes it difficult for the body to absorb incoming oxygen so that as compensation the lungs will breathe faster. This condition occurs shortly after the baby is born and lasts for several days hyaline membrane disease, which is respiratory distress in infants due to supporting substances of the lung sacs that have not formed completely due to immature lungs. This condition generally occurs in premature babies. In conditions of severe respiratory distress it is true that your baby will be monitored more closely in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), including the use of breathing aids and other devices to help monitor the development of your baby's condition . Current breastfeeding may not be possible if your baby needs the help of these devices to support his breathing. Maybe this is the reason why you haven't been able to breastfeed your baby. Usually to support the nutrition will be installed a hose from the nose into the stomach so that formula feeding can be given. Nutrition for your baby will also be given through intravenous fluids. For now, please try asking the pediatrician who treats your child further about his condition. To maintain breast milk production, please keep pumping and emptying your breasts regularly every 2-3 hours. Regular breast emptying can trigger the body to produce more milk so that breast milk production is maintained.
It's not easy to see your baby's condition right now, but you must stay strong and take care of your health. Make sure you get enough rest and as much as possible manage stress so that the production of milk is not interrupted. Discuss with your child's specialist if you have further questions. Ask for the support of your husband and family in dealing with the current situation.
Hopefully this information is useful.
