Hi Itta,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

It needs to be clarified, is your baby still consuming exclusive breastfeeding?

Young babies often have immature cough and swallow reflexes. As a result, excess mucus production in the airways can build up in the throat and partially block the airway. That's why the baby's breath can sound grok-grok. This condition can worsen when there is an increase in mucus production in the airways, for example when the child is exposed to cold temperatures, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, or other allergens.

Colds that your baby is experiencing can also be caused by increased mucus production by the respiratory tract, for example due to exposure to allergens as mentioned above.

It's best to keep your child out in the morning sun before 9 o'clock to loosen up the phlegm. Keep babies away from exposure to allergens (as mentioned above) and keep babies away from adults who are infectious. In addition, first try to observe whether the runny nose and wheezing are accompanied by other complaints, such as fever, shortness of breath, cough, or vomiting. If so, you can check with your doctor directly to make sure, this might indicate a respiratory infection, such as rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, bronchopneumonia, and so on. This complaint may also indicate a mass in the nasal cavity or throat, for example due to polyps, cancer, and so on.

It's the same with colds and wheezing, not defecating for days on babies who are still exclusively breastfed can be normal. This can indicate that breast milk is able to be absorbed very well by the baby's digestive tract. If you don't have a bowel movement for more than 2 weeks, and there are no complaints of abdominal pain, flatulence, vomiting, fever, etc., then you don't need to worry. Continue to give him exclusive breastfeeding until he is even 6 months old. Also accompany these steps by diligently doing baby massage and inviting him to actively move while playing. In this way, it is hoped that the baby's bowel movements can run more smoothly.

However, if it doesn't improve too, or danger signs appear as above, check your child directly to the doctor. It is possible that these complaints arise due to a disease, such as Hirschsprung's disease, intra-abdominal tumors, and so on.

Hope it helps ya..
