Hearing in newborns

08/06/20 10:55

Hello, I have a 3-week-old daughter, I would like to ask when should she start responding to sounds? It seems that she isn’t shocked by anything, such as when a dog barks or the door slams. I'm worried about whether she can hear or not, they examined her ears in the hospital, but I don't know exactly what the result was.

Hello, sometimes,when newborns sleep deeply, not even very loud sounds wake them up, in contrast, sometimes they jump at the slightest noise. When your daughter is awake, try to clap loudly or tinkle with a toy just outside of her field of vision and see if she turns at the sound. Try it first from 1 side, and then from the other side. If she doesn’t respond to the sound, make an appointment at ENT to test her hearing sensitivity.

Reflux

Good evening, I have a question, my daughter is 4 weeks old, ever since birth she’s always vomited a bit, she’s gaining enough weight, so we haven't bothered with it yet, she is always breastfed. But now she’s always sick after breastfeeding, even if it’s a small amount, otherwise she’s cheerful and wees enough. What could it be?

Hello, there can be many causes, e.g. GER - gastroesophageal reflux - try to wind her for as long as possible after each feeding, put her in bed in a slightly raised position, wait quite a while before you put her on her tummy after breastfeeding. It is possible that she overeats and therefore vomits after each breastfeed. If the vomiting persists, or escalates, or there are other symptoms, it is advisable to have your daughter examined by your attendant paediatrician.

Diarrhoea when teething

08/06/20 10:32

Hello, I’d like to ask, I have a 7-month-old son who is probably starting to teethe and it looks like 2 will come through out at once. They are visible just below the gums, but haven’t come through yet. For the last 2 days he’s been a bit grumpier than usual, he doesn't eat the food that he used to enjoy, he just wants to breastfeed, he’s always putting everything into his mouth, yesterday he had a temperature of 38 degrees and today he’s already had about 4 small, mushy poohs, which has brought a rash, he doesn’t vomit and wees enough. How can I help him with nappy rash and how long can diarrhoea last when his teeth grow?

Hello, it is very individual, it is not possible to say exactly how long diarrhoea can last when teething, it can last 2-3 days, but also maybe a week. It is important to make sure that your son has enough fluids and does not become dehydrated. You can give him probiotics to improve his intestinal microflora. For sores, it is best to let the skin air as much as possible without nappies, wash the bottom under lukewarm water after a pooh, do not use wet wipes, or minimize their use, apply sore cream after each wash, change the nappies more often, smear the most affected skin with a cold decoction of black tea and let it dry. Limit spicy foods for a while.

Short pauses in an infant’s breathing

08/06/20 10:30

Hello, since the birth of Natally (2 and a half months) I have been observing short respiratory arrest within 5 seconds and subsequent gasping for breath. It is not just when drinking from a bottle, but also when she’s in a reclining position in a chair. I told the doctor over the phone and she said that if she did not turn blue, she did not see a neurological problem. However, she frequently turns completely red whilst gasping for breath and cries because she is scared. She is my second child, the first child did not have it and is healthy, and both pregnancies were problem-free. Natally was born full term by caesarean section due to obstructed labour in the previous birth. Everything was fine. Could you please tell me if this is normal for an infant? Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hello, up to 5 seconds is usually normal, if she does not turn blue. The problem when drinking from a bottle may be that she’s in the wrong position, or try changing the type of bottle. Try not to put her in the lounger so often, try her on the floor on her back or belly. If she doesn't do it in her sleep or in other positions, I wouldn't worry too much. If, on the other hand, it escalates and worsens, visit a paediatrician and they will examine your daughter.

Hello, since your daughter doesn’t have any problems yet, you do not need to see a doctor yet, try checking the stools until the ball passes through the digestive tract. It should do so. If it hasn’t within 7 days, you should have your daughter examined in a hospital ward where they can take an X-ray with a contrast agent, which, with it being a metal ball, should show where it is. If your daughter starts to have any problems, such as vomiting, abdominal pain, etc., have her examined by a doctor immediately.
