Problems With Premature Babies?
, I just gave birth today at 32 weeks of pregnancy.. Guess what are the obstacles and solutions for me and my baby, I was born normal..
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The gestational age at which a baby is declared mature enough to survive is called term. Term pregnancy is when the gestational age is in the range of 37-40 weeks (this figure can vary slightly depending on the source used). And if it is less than that, it is called preterm or premature.
The problems commonly encountered in premature babies are respiratory difficulties due to immature development, digestive disorders, infections, difficulty maintaining body temperature, and low birth weight.
Usually, babies who are born prematurely in the hospital will be immediately put into an incubator in the nursery and immediately treated by a pediatrician. An incubator is a device that functions to keep the baby warm and reduce the risk of infection in infants, especially premature babies.
If this has not been treated by a doctor, then our advice is to immediately take your child to a pediatrician for an examination of your child's current clinical condition. Meanwhile, what you can do is give immunizations, keep your baby away from sick people, limit people who meet him, don't take him out of the house too often, and pay attention to his sleeping position, don't tilt or stomach.

That's all, hope it helps.
