COMMON HEALTH PROBLEM WITH OUR BABY

COMMON HEALTH PROBLEM WITH OUR BABY
Illustration
If we have a new born baby, and this is our first time having baby, usually we don't have to much experience about some health problem with baby. It is very natural become worry about something happen with our newborn baby, but some of the problem could be common to happen at newborn baby, so we shouldn't to much worry about it. Some of that common problem will be cicatrize with the right care. We should also ask for the doctor about what happen with our baby to find more complete information.

Here is some information to help calm for your concerns :

  • Soft spot. The indent on top of a baby's head (the fontanel) is where the bones haven't completely grown together. It's covered by a tough membrane and is not easily injured. By about 18 months, it will be closed.
  • Jaundice. This yellowish tint to baby's skin occurs when a substance called bilirubin builds up faster than the baby's liver can break it down. If the condition persists, the baby may need treatment with special lights. (More information about Joundice)
  • Spotty skin. Plugged pores can cause little white spots on your baby's face. They will fade away in time.
  • Stork bites. These pink, brown or red stains on the back of baby's neck will likely go away by about 18 months.
  • Mongolian spot. A large bluish-gray mark on the baby's back is common among babies of Asian or African ancestry. It will likely disappear by age 5.
  • Bruises. Don't be too alarmed. Bruises from delivery will heal eventually.
  • Crossed eyes. Extra folds of skin at the inside corner of the baby's eyes may make him look cross-eyed. Most babies outgrow the condition.
  • Clogged tear ducts. If baby's eyes look watery or have a discharge, she may have clogged tear ducts. Consult your baby's doctor.
  • Rashes are common in newborns. This problem includes neonatal acne, drooling rashes, and flaky skin that will usually clear up on their own without treatment. Most will fade with time, but ask your doctor if you're concerned.
  • Thrush, white patches that coat inside the cheeks and tongue, usually this cannot be easily wiped off. It is caused by a very mild yeast infection and is easily cleared up with a prescription medicine called Nystatin.
  • Eczema can quite often occur in babies up to about 4 months of age. It is usually milder than the type that occurs in adults. Your baby’s cheeks become rough and scaly and this can also occur in your child’s eyebrows and hair (cradle cap). If infection sets in, the skin can become scaly, develop cracks and redness and weep.

    Caused by overactivity of the sweat glands. This is usually grown out of in the first 6 months. You should stop using soap in his bath, ask your pharmacist about alternatives. If the rash is particularly bad, you should limit the bathing to 2 times per week. Do not use baby creams and lotions.

  • Cradle cap is a type of eczema, a build up of natural oils. This causes a dry scaly crust on your baby’s head. Petroleum jelly (vaseline) can help soften the scales and allow their removal. Also loosen the scales with baby oil or then with shampoo scalp and pat dry.
  • Oral thrush. Baby’s immune system have not fully developed and can not often withstand infection of the candida albicans fungus. It most often occurs in their mouth. It will look like white milk curds stuck to the inside of the mouth. They will not be removed or scraped off however.

    Thrush can be painful but more than likely your child will tolerate it. Your will need to speak to your doctor or pharmacist about specific products which will remove the thrush.

    Also treat your nipples if breastfeeding as it can spread to you. You must also sterilise all feeding equipment and anything else your baby puts in his or her mouth. Change your sterilisation equipment you use for your feeding equipment often when your child has thrush.

  • Reflux. This can happen often in new babies. It occurs when your child vomits up most of the food swallowed. It is caused by a poorly formed valve between the gullet and the stomach. The valve usually rights itself as the child becomes older.

    This can be a worrying time for parents as they worry if their child is putting on enough weight. The problem with reflux occurs when the vomiting becomes very regular and annoying, your baby does not put on weight. Usually the child will grow out of this problem in the first few months. A few helpful hints are to adjust the baby’s resting position. Put the cot up at the head end about 30 degrees.

Like what already said before, some of the problem will recover itself and also with some right care, but if you are too worry with your newborn baby, ask your doctor for more right information.
