The Baby’s Body Is Suddenly Stiff And Cannot Breathe?
my baby is 1 month old. Sometimes it arrives “his body becomes stiff and can’t breathe. It has happened 3 times. After a few seconds he can move immediately and be loud. What is the cause? And how to deal with it so that it doesn’t happen again?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Muscle stiffness in infants needs to be of particular concern to parents. Muscle stiffness in question needs to be confirmed by a doctor through a direct physical examination to be able to assess whether the symptoms in question are true indicating abnormalities or not. Muscle strength in infants needs to be excluded from the possibility of cerebral palsy, or it can also be a form of seizure attack on the baby. If events like this often occur, or in the course of the baby is classified as experiencing developmental delays such as being late to sit or late talking, then do not hesitate to consult the doctor. Investigations may be needed, for example blood tests, imaging, or electroencephalography. Handling in the future will depend on the final diagnosis from the results of previous examinations.
That's all, hope you can help.
