Monitor alarm

08/06/20 10:09

Hello, we have a Nanny breathing monitor. It has sounded the alarm several times. The baby slept soundly, I could not hear its breath or feel the movements of its chest. When I shook her a little, she took a loud breath. What should I do? I'm even afraid to just go for a walk so that she doesn't sleep soundly in the pram and stop breathing again. The baby is 3 weeks old, but was born before the end of term by c.s. due to a partially separated placenta.

Hello, if the monitor has reported an alarm several times over, it would be advisable to have your baby examined by a paediatrician as soon as possible. You can also buy a second Nanny pad, which can be used in the pram. Or you can check whether your baby is lying directly on the mat and whether the mattress is pressing directly on the mat, without any gap, or place the mat directly under the sheet. Your baby was born slightly immature, for some this may mean they have a pause longer than 20 seconds between breaths, so the monitor sets off the alarms and the baby wakes up; it is because the respiratory centre in the brain is not fully developed. With time, these episodes should gradually disappear completely, as the breathing centre develops. But it is different for each baby.

Sleep problems

08/06/20 09:59

Good evening. I have a 4-week-old daughter and every night after bathing, while breastfeeding she starts acting up. She cries, gets angry and rails against the breasts while stills looking for it and drinking. After two hours, sometimes even more, she calms down, sucks for a few minutes and falls asleep. Is it normal or what should I do? Thank you

Hello, there can be several causes. It is possible that your daughter is already very tired, even overtired, after the bath, so she can’t suckle properly and constantly pulls away from the breast, which annoys her so much she can’t fall asleep at all. You could try to put your daughter to sleep about 15-30 minutes earlier than usual. Make sure that your daughter is calm as you put her to bed and is not disturbed by anything, such as television, etc. Another reason may be that your daughter suffers from colic, which in layman terms means that her stomach hurts, she’s annoyed, cries, she’d like to eat, but she constantly tears herself away from the breast, it can take several hours, then she falls asleep - it depends a great deal on the mother’s diet, because everything passes into the breast milk, you can try the positions for colic - the “Cradle” or the “Tiger” - for more details see the question below How Can I Help my Baby with Flatulence. Another possibility may be that your wife has less milk and this small amount is not enough, so your daughter turns away from the breast. Ask your wife to try squirting milk out of her breast to see if she has enough. Or, in contrast, it could be that the breasts are very full and the milk squirts out too fast so the baby can’t swallow it in time, so she turns away from the breast. Your wife could try warming the breasts prior to feeding, or even squirt a little bit out beforehand. If this condition persists for a long time, or worsens, or if there are more symptoms, visit a paediatrician and have your daughter examined.

Monitor alarm

Hello, Doctor, I’d like to ask where to go with my daughter for an examination, whenever our breathing monitor beeped, 6 times now, my daughter was always lying on it. She wasn’t blue and still breathed, she always slept on, for my peace of mind I’d rather go for some examination and I don't know where the paediatrician told me to go, she said she sounded okay, but she didn't send us anywhere. Thank you very much for your opinion on where I should go, I am afraid I’ll overlook something. I have the monitor properly connected to everything as it should be, it’s new. Thank you very much, Susan.

Hello, if your daughter was definitely lying on the mat and was not blue and still breathing, it is possible that her breath was shallower than usual, or she did not inhale for more than 20 seconds, so the monitor sounded the alarmed and your daughter inhaled at the sound. I don't know how old your daughter is, but this is one of the things that can happen in newborns and younger infants even if the child is completely healthy, it is most likely due to the immaturity of the respiratory centre, which usually adjusts with age. In any case, you did well to have your daughter examined by a paediatrician. If listening to the heart and lungs showed she is normal, there are good, palpable pulses on both femoral arteries, your daughter does not cough, is not turning blue, is doing well, the skin is well perfused, she doesn’t have a temperature, so I would not burden her with any more examinations. If the alarm goes off again, see the paediatrician once more. Furthermore, it’d be good to get a cardiologist to examine her, in the extreme case it may involve hospitalization with ECG monitoring. If the pad really is new and you have the proof of purchase, contact your dealer - the pad can be checked at the manufacturer’s service department. If the pad is more than 2 years old or is handed down from another child, I’d recommend buying a new pad.

Hello, if the blood is dry and there’s just a little, it’s normal. Carry on cleaning the navel in the morning and in the evening. If blood increases or fresh blood begins to appear, see your child's paediatrician.

Hello, you didn’t say how old your baby is, but in general it can be said that the baby has enough fluids if it has at least 8-10 soaked nappies/24 hours. The fontanelle on the head (soft place on the head) is level, not sunken . If you pinch the skin, for example on the back of the hand, and let go, it will quickly settle. The mucous membranes and tongue are not dry. He doesn’t have hollowed eyes. He also reacts adequately with regards to his age - he is alert, he is not sleepy outside his regular sleeping time.
