The Cause Of A Baby’s 1.5 Month Old Breath Sounds During Sleep?
I have a baby aged 1.5 months. When sleeping, I often see my child moaning like an adult with a fever. Is that normal or is there something about my child? R nDo I have to take him to the pediatrician? R nPlease explain … thank you ..
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Generally, your breath doesn't sound, and a baby whose breath sounds, let alone sounds like moaning, can really make parents worry. However, not all of these conditions should be worried about.
Among normal conditions, this is because your baby's lungs and nose are still adapting to their new environment. After previously getting oxygen through the placenta while in the uterus, during this 1.5 months your baby practices to breathe in different conditions. This can take several weeks and is nothing to worry about.
On the other hand, there are conditions where you have to be aware of the sound of the baby's breath. Among them are if:
Your baby breathes more than 60-70 times a minute Continuously snorts with dilated nostrils Has a hoarse voice and has a heavy cough Looks sluggish Doesn't want to drink His breath stops for more than 10 seconds You can see a pull on the chest and neck when the baby breathes
The conditions associated with this incident are:
Asthma Croup Pneumonia
If you are confused, you should just have your child checked by a pediatrician, so that a specialist can assess whether your child is normal or not. Meanwhile, continue breastfeeding, and keep an eye on your child, and immediately take him to the hospital if symptoms appear as we have previously conveyed. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
