This article discusses the conditions in a newly born baby, which a mother and family need to know about, as they cause much anxiety and unknown fear and also frequent unnecessary doctor visits.
Sounds near the chest while breathing without any breathing difficulty and noisy breathing are normal in a newborn. These conditions do not require any treatment. Nasal drops are sufficient in most cases.
Conditions that require attention are:
Normal Skin Changes
Skin changes observed in a newborn include:
Bright red spots in the white of the eye soon after birth and mild redness over the eyelids is common in a newborn.
The cry can be due to many reasons
A common cause of cry which requires medication is a colicky abdominal pain, usually in the evenings.
Presence of excessive cry, which does not subside with feeding or consoling requires the use of anti-colic drops.
Beware of irritable cry, which might be a sign of:
Hiccups and sneezing are quite common. Hiccups usually occur due to swallowing air during feeds. Feeding can reduce hiccups.
Some white or red discharge from the vagina in girl babies.
