The Baby’s Abdominal Muscles Are Especially Evident In Premature Babies?
Good afternoon. I want to ask. R nI have a premature baby who has only been able to get 49 days and the muscles in my baby’s stomach are clearly visible. Normal or not if the premature baby’s stomach muscles are visible
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Premature birth is a birth that occurs before the time of normal birth. Normal birth usually occurs after the uterus reaches 40 weeks of age. Thus, a birth is called premature birth if it occurs at a gestational age below 37 weeks.
There are many causes and risk factors for a pregnancy to become premature, including:
Stress, lots of thoughts Inhalation of cigarette smoke Consuming alcohol, drugs Containing twins Lack or overweight before pregnancy Health problems such as high blood pressure and high blood sugar levels Having infections or problems with the placenta, cervix and uterus
In your child's case, 2100g of weight is considered very low and your baby will still need a lot of help getting through the first months of life. The visible abdominal muscles indicate a lack of a layer of fat on the baby's stomach which can make it easier to feel cold. As for a bulging stomach, this is a normal appearance in babies, but if it is more bulging than usual, this can be caused by improper digestion, lack of nutrition and so on.
Our advice, as we have previously stated, that premature babies still need a lot of help and supervision, so you should check your baby with a pediatrician for further tests. Your doctor will check your baby's nutritional levels from weight gain from birth to present, and take X-rays and ultrasound if necessary.
Meanwhile, take care of your baby by keeping him warm by giving him a hat and long clothes as well as socks and socks, limit the number of people who can see him, keep him away from cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, and continue to provide breast milk. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
