What Is The Cause Of Grocery Breath In Babies Accompanied By Difficulty In Breathing And Breastfeeding?
, my child is 5 months old, from 1 month ago he always slept snoring, like he was having difficulty breathing, so he didn’t sleep well, if he woke up and wanted to suckle it was also hard to swallow, so sometimes he ran off his head when he was given formula milk, because difficulty breathing when swallowing. my room temperature is 23 degrees, it’s not too cold either.
Hello, Thank you for the question.
The sound of grok-grok can be experienced by newborns as a result of mucocillary cleansing of the respiratory tract that has not yet developed optimally. Mucociliary clearance serves to clear mucus from the respiratory tract to the throat so that it is easy to cough. If this mucocillary cleansing has not developed optimally, mucus can accumulate in the respiratory tract and cause loud sounds when the baby is breathing. Mucus in the respiratory tract can be produced when there is irritation, infection, or allergies. If the complaint is accompanied by shortness of breath, high fever, difficulty in breastfeeding the baby, and appear weak, this condition should be treated medically. Because your child has difficulty breathing and complaints have occurred for 1 month, please check your child's condition to see a pediatrician. The doctor will ask about your child's condition and examine it. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide further treatment.
You can still breastfeed your child. You can also clean your child's nasal mucus by using saline and a pipette that you can buy at pharmacies. If your child's nose seems clogged, you can take your child into the bathroom and let the hot tap run so that your child can breathe in the steam.
Hopefully this information is useful.
