Swallowing a small piece of plastic

08/06/20 13:46

Hello, I would like to ask, a while ago my 8-month-old son probably bit a small piece of a plastic cover from my mobile phone, it could have been a piece up to 2mm, until now I noticed that I was missing a piece, it was rounded. He didn't cough, he's cheerful, he plays, he doesn't have anything in his mouth anymore, he doesn't bleed from his mouth, I gave him a drink, he drinks normally. Should I go to the doctor with him, will it go come out in his stool or could something happen?

Hello, since it was a piece of plastic and it was rounded and very small, nothing should happen. If your son really did swallow it, the plastic piece should easily come out of the digestive tract together with the stool. If your son behaves normally, has normal stools, does not vomit, there is no need to see a doctor. If anything changes, it would be advisable to have him examined.

A dummy during breastfeeding?

08/06/20 13:44

Hello, I now have a 3-week-old daughter, born at term, gaining weight well, breastfeeding fully. However, for the last few days, she wants to be on the breast nonstop. As soon as I put her aside, she sleeps for a while, but then she wakes up and nothing calms her except breastfeeding, so I sometimes even breastfeed every hour, day and night. I’m starting to get very tired. I’d like to ask if I can give her a dummy? Will it affect breastfeeding?

Hello, opinions on this vary, especially from lactation consultants, who strictly reject dummies whilst breastfeeding, but in my own experience, if you have the right breastfeeding technique, your daughter’s doing well and she holds onto the breast well, it is not a problem to give your daughter a dummy if she wants. It may be that some children do not want a dummy, then it is necessary to try repeatedly and, if necessary, to replace it with a dummy from other brands. Giving a dummy usually doesn’t mean that your daughter will start to refuse to breastfeed.

Hello, after birth the 1st stool to leave it is called a meconium and has a greasy consistency and is black, it usually leaves after about 2-3 days. Then, if the baby is only breastfed, the stool colour and consistency gradually begin to change to yellow with the consistency of “scrambled eggs”. If the baby is on artificial nutrition, the consistency may be a little stiffer. Stools should not contain mucous or blood.

Walking

Hello, my son is 10 months old and has been walking alone without being held for two weeks now. But it seems that his feet don't point outwards, as they should, instead they point inwards. Will this correct itself And is it better to buy him some shoes or leave him in socks? Thank you very much for your advice.

Hello, if he already spends most of his time standing up, it would be advisable for you to buy him some good-quality, sturdy shoes, if, in contrast, he climbs even more often than he walks, socks with anti-slip or leather non-slip slippers (soft) will do. It depends on how much the toe tips turn inwards. It is possible that sturdy shoes will suffice and his posture will gradually adjust on its own and the feet will not turn inwards. If the tips later turn further inwards and it does not improve, your paediatrician can write you a request to the orthopaedist as well as for physiotherapy, where they will show you a suitable exercise. I recommend consulting your paediatrician for a preventive examination.

Psychomotor development

08/06/20 13:23

Hello, I’d like to ask, what is the latest that a baby should be able to raise its head whilst on its tummy? My daughter will be exactly 3 months in a week, she was born at term. She’s cheerful, she laughs, she’s started burbling sometimes, she’s also interested in toys, she’s gaining weight nicely, but she doesn't want to be on her tummy much. And when she is, she can only keep her head raised for a while, then she leans on her forehead and starts crying. I try to put her on her belly about 2-3 times a day.

Hello, every baby is different, but at 3 months she should be able to raise herself on her arms, however, at the latest she should be able to do it at 4 months. Try putting her on her belly as often as possible, at least 5 times a day, just for a few minutes. If possible, whenever she's awake. She should be on a hard surface, not on a sofa or bed where it's harder for her. You can help her slightly by gently holding the thumbs of your hands behind her elbows. It is important that you are behind her when training on the ground. Your daughter should have a preventive 3-month check-up at her paediatrician. I recommend discussing this with the paediatrician directly during the check up and arranging the next step. For instance, it is also possible to prescribe rehabilitation exercises.
