Why Do Babies Choke From The Nose?
, my child is 1bulan 7 days, while sleeping my child always wakes up like he wants to vomit. Today my child chokes on my nose and twice … what’s the cause and how to deal with it?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Infants aged 1 month 7 days complained of choking from the nose and as if to vomit. For this complaint need more information, before the child feels want to choke there are underlying factors? Usually like a child who has been drinking milk and turns out to drink too much, so the child chokes, or when he is sleeping it turns out the child drinks breast milk and then falls on the breast of the mother or feels "full" in his mouth until finally like choking and wanting to vomit, or there may be other factors from within the organ the child's body that causes the child to choke, such as a disturbance in the area around the child's mouth, child's throat, child's nose or it could be a sign of an abnormality in internal organs such as the heart, but this is quite rare.
To find out more precisely about the cause of a child choking from the nose and like wanting to vomit, you should be examined by a pediatrician, to be further examined regarding complaints that occur in the child's mother. The pediatrician will further examine whether there are abnormalities that occur in the child's organs or just an error in the position and amount of milk given.
Things to do at home include:
- Give ASI to the child every 2 hours or every child asks
- make sure that every time you drink breastmilk the child always sucks it, the mother feels her breastmilk sucked, the child becomes full which is characterized by sound sleep, BAK 5-6 times a day, CHAPTER 6-8 times a day, and if you already feel in the child's mouth the milk is too excessive a baby may need a short break
- Give ASI with the right position, make sure the child does not find it difficult to get ASI, the child's mouth must go in until it covers the entire black part of the mother's breast.
That's all, hopefully useful, thanks :)
