Monitor alarm

08/06/20 12:38

Hello, the first question is about the Nanny breathing monitor. Our 3-week-old baby girl was sleeping when the alarm went off indicating that she was probably not breathing, as we leant over the bed we saw she was breathing but was curled up, could the alarm have gone off because of this? It scared us a lot. The second question: we used Sunar anti-allergy milk formula, then we switched to the brand Hami, but it is not stated that it is anti-allergy. Our daughter prefers this, could switching brands hurt her somehow? Thank you t.

Hello, it is possible that when your daughter was curled up, she did not have enough contact with the pad and the monitor could have assessed that as she was not breathing. Sometimes this can happen even if the baby is very small and light. You can also place the sensor pad directly under the sheet, not under the mattress. For question 2, I assume that your daughter has had Sunar HA - which is milk that can be given if there are allergies in the family - for other family members, i.e. not a child's allergy - it is only a matter of prevention, i.e. that switching to Hami if your daughter tolerates it, won't hurt her.

Reply: Breathing monitor and SIDS

08/06/20 12:37

Hello, I would like to point out that the cause of SIDS is still unknown, we only know the risk factors which, when present, make SIDS more likely to occur. Therefore, we try to completely eliminate these factors, or at least reduce their incidence. It concerns the sudden death of an infant who was quite healthy shortly before - i.e. death occurs very quickly. It's not just that the child “simply” forgets to breathe - it's a serious condition - the child is not breathing, and if this condition is not interrupted, it will lead to death. Therefore, any child with demonstrable respiratory arrest should be examined by a paediatrician. The breathing monitor should warn us that the child is not breathing so that we can react as quickly as possible, or even start resuscitation and call for first aid. If the child is in a hospital, a doctor is called as soon as possible, but despite all the measures and rapid help, the child can sometimes die. So what I want to say is that eliminating the risk factors and using a breathing monitor should help minimize the occurrence of SIDS, but it cannot completely prevent it. But even so, the correct use of a breathing monitor can minimize the risk of death, which would be much higher without using a monitor. A breathing monitor should help us react as soon as possible if the child stops breathing or breathes irregularly so that we can turn the situation around.

Bloody mucus in the stool of a newborn

08/06/20 12:33

Hello. We have a 16 day old newborn. He was born at 33 + 3 weeks. Bloody mucous appeared in the stools. Not in large amounts, but there is always a hint Repeated samples for Clostridial toxin were negative. He’s got nappy rash from the frequent stools, we rub imazol on it. All the samples are fine. Our son is on milk formula Nenatal 0. He often squeezes and pushes. He always manages to push out a fart or a stool. Thanks for your opinion

Hello, there can be many reasons, I assume you have been to your paediatrician with the baby when you write that all the samples came out normal. You write that he is on milk formula Nenatal 0. I don't know if, for example, you are breastfeeding or collecting the milk and giving him, for example, 1 dose of breast milk? Otherwise, how is your baby doing clinically, is he doing well, how long does it take. How long were you in hospital after the birth, what did the baby look after the birth, are you giving him vitamin K, etc. How long has the stool had mucus with blood in it, is it in every stool, etc. Does he have stiff stools or are they very runny, what colour are they, how often - are they bigger than usual? Does anyone in the family have a diarrhoeal disease right now? In addition, by being premature and immature, you are more at risk of developing certain diseases. Therefore, I recommend that you contact your paediatrician by phone and consult the condition directly with them, and have your baby examined again, or repeat or extend the tests if it persists - as recommended by your paediatrician.

Watery stools in a month old baby

08/06/20 10:59

Hello, I have a month old baby that is fully breastfed. At the start her stools were like "scrambled eggs", but they gradually began to change to a more watery consistency, still with precipitates, but very watery. Sometimes she pushes when changing her nappies and it squirts out of her completely. She doesn’t have any other problems, neither fever nor convulsions, she drinks normally, sometimes more often, she takes a longer break at night I give her Biogaia and Vigantol. Should I be worried and take her to the doctor? I don’t give her dairy products, but the consistency is still the same.

Hello, if the stool is more watery but still resembles scrambled eggs, it doesn't have to mean anything bad. If the number of stools doesn’t increase rapidly in 24 hours, the frequency and amount of stools begins to increase, the stools are completely watery, she has a temperature, your daughter’s nappies are not so wet, etc., it would be time to have her examined by a paediatrician. If it fixes itself, simply mention it to the pediatrician during your next check up. Sometimes probiotics can also temporarily cause this, if they are used for a long time, although they should have the opposite effect. If your daughter does not suffer from colic, try dropping the probiotics.

Alarm after vaccination

08/06/20 10:57

Hello, just recently we were with our six-month-old daughter for the second Prevenar 13 vaccination, and our breathing monitor beeped three times during the night. My daughter has recently become more mobile in the cot, she’s slept on different sides of the cot, on her side, but the monitor still managed to capture everything. That night she slept on her side again, in the same position she had been used to lately. Should I be worried? After two beeps, we changed the batteries to be sure, but the monitor went off for the third time, this time with the alarm. I didn’t manage to turn it off in time, so my daughter cried a lot, as she was afraid. Could it be the vaccination? It happened again after two days, after beeping my daughter took a deep breath, she was on her side again by the side of the cot, I watched to see if she’d move, but didn't and after turning on the monitor she slept calmly. Thank you for your answer.

Hello, direct vaccination is unlikely to have an affect, especially if it was the 2nd dose. I assume the first jab went ahead without any serious reactions. It can also be due to the fact that your daughter is more mobile, also check that the mattress isn’t slightly raised, especially at the side, then the contact with the sensor pad may be worse in these places, thus triggering the alarm. If the alarm goes off again, have your daughter examined by her paediatrician.
