Is the baby spitting bubbles pneumonia? If you still have these symptoms, it is possible that

Some parents will find that the baby will gradually look like a crab before and after the full moon, and play "spit bubbles". Parents think it is very cute, but if you go to the Internet, the Internet will tell you that the baby's spitting bubbles may be symptoms of pneumonia. Parents have to take the baby to the hospital quickly. In fact, neonatal pneumonia will have the phenomenon of spitting bubbles, but it does not mean that spitting bubbles will definitely cause pneumonia.

These bubbles are a normal physiological phenomenon

1. When the baby reaches the saliva secretion period, the saliva secretion increases as the child grows, but the baby's mouth still remains. Relatively shallow, the tongue and swallowing ability are immature, so small babies often drool and blow bubbles. 2. When deciduous teeth erupt, the baby's first deciduous tooth usually grows in 4-11 months, and usually 20 deciduous teeth will grow at about 2 years old. At the stage of deciduous teeth eruption, most children will have a decrease in appetite, increase in spit bubbles and drooling, and even some babies will show irritability because of discomfort. At this time, parents can prepare a molar stick or teether for the baby to relieve the discomfort of the gums. At the same time, in order to prevent saliva from irritating the child's skin, it is necessary to wipe the baby more and apply more moisturizing cream. 3. The baby is playful and loves to spit bubbles This means that the baby is playing with bubbles. Although this is a playful little move for the baby, it trains the child's ability to control his tongue, lips and facial muscles. It also helps with chewing training and the ability to drink from a cup and control the lips. Therefore, if the baby is only spitting bubbles occasionally, but the feeding is good, the mental response is good, and the breathing is stable, there is no need to worry too much.

The relationship between spitting up bubbles and pneumonia, early judgment is very important

If the baby keeps spitting up bubbles, mothers should pay attention, timely and carefully Observe your baby's physical condition. If you find that your baby is also accompanied by the following symptoms or other abnormalities, you should seek medical attention in time to consider whether your baby has neonatal pneumonia.
  • Shortness of breath and increased respiratory rate
Shortness of breath is the most typical symptom of pneumonia. Because the lungs are infected, the alveoli that were originally filled with oxygen are occupied by pus, resulting in less oxygen and difficulty in gas exchange for the baby. So how can you tell if your child is short of breath? First wait for the child to calm down, remove the child's clothes, and observe the breathing. Generally, the assessment is performed in 60 seconds. If the child's respiratory rate exceeds the respiratory rate standard for the child's age after several counts, be alert to the possibility of pneumonia. The standard of normal children's breathing rate is: within 2 months, the baby's breathing rate is about 60 times/min; 2-12 months old, the baby's breathing rate is about 50 times/min; 1-5 years old, the baby's breathing rate is 40 times/min minutes; after the baby is 5 years old, the breathing rate is about 50 times per minute.
  • Fever and severe cough
When a common cold occurs, the child will have a runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, etc. The fever temperature is rarely higher than 39 degrees, and the cough is mostly in the morning and in the morning. night. And children with pneumonia may also have chills, shivering, etc. when they have a fever. When coughing, they may sound phlegm, and when the cough is severe, their face will be flushed or even vomiting, and the frequency will be more frequent.
  • Three concave sign is a sign of severe pneumonia
When the child's three parts, namely the suprasternal fossa, the supraclavicular fossa and the intercostal space, appear inward concave when breathing This indicates that the child may have severe pneumonia. However, for newborns not long after birth, typical symptoms such as fever and cough may not appear sometimes, but rapid breathing, choking on milk, and bubbling in the mouth should be noticed, and you should seek medical attention in time.

Things to consider when caring for a child with pneumonia

Take medicine as directed by your doctor: Give your child medicine under the guidance of a doctor. Encourage your baby to cough to get rid of phlegm. Give plenty of fluids: children who have added complementary foods can be fed a small amount of water; children under 6 months can increase the frequency of breastfeeding, but each feeding should not be too much, feeding small and multiple times; avoid squeezing the child's stomach, and Burp properly to speed up gastric emptying to avoid gastroesophageal reflux. Feed your child nutritious food: Some parents think that their child is sick and should eat light food. In fact, if a sick child is in a bad mood and loses appetite, he needs more nutritious food (meat, fish, eggs, etc.) to help the child restore energy and fight the virus. Open windows frequently to ventilate and maintain indoor humidity: Parents should open windows frequently to allow indoor air circulation. If the air is dry, you can buy a humidifier to ensure that the indoor humidity is maintained at about 50%-60%, which will help the child's recovery. Of course, the most important thing is that no one smokes at home, because this will increase the probability of the child getting pneumonia and delay the recovery of the child's condition. In short, pneumonia is not terrible. The main thing is that parents should take good care of them, pay more attention to observation in daily life, learn more about prevention knowledge, and make children less dangerous.
