What is a newborn sap?

Sapka in a newborn is different difficulty breathing, louder breathing which is worth consulting with the pediatrician during your next visit, but without worrying about your baby's health.

Usually, the sap is not dangerous, passes by itself, and the child does not feel discomfort because of it. Sapka in itself can worsen the mood of a parent ... who, when he hears the "different breath" of a child, is concerned whether the baby is all right.

The nostrils in a newborn are small, so their minimal narrowing can make it difficult to breathe. This situation is also observed when mucus accumulates in the child's nose, leftovers of spilled food, dirt, dust or mucous membranes are usually swollen due to runny nose.

How do you make a newborn baby's slipper pass?

A newborn child's slipper usually passes by itself. It is worth helping the baby, the following methods work well:

  • systematic removal of nasal discharge - read more.
  • take care of optimal air humidification in the house / apartment, especially during the heating season,
  • make sure that the baby is in the open air every day.

The child should be in the open air and at home in often ventilated rooms. Too high temperature and dry, heated air, unfortunately, irritates the delicate mucosa of the nose. In addition, remember to moisturize the mucosa by using saline spray, preferably every day after bathing - a small amount of fluid is enough for each hole in the nose.

If the infant's baby makes it difficult to suck and sleep, consult a doctor. Talk to a specialist if the problem persists after a few days of using the above methods. In a few cases, sap can be a symptom of asthma or cystic fibrosis.
