Always make it a practice to encourage your children to inform you if they face any pain or discomfort in the neck or back before it becomes a serious problem.

Azithral is an antibiotic if it is not improving then cough might be allergic in nature. Get use of nebuliser with prescription of your pediatrician. He would help you for the same.

If your baby is having blood in stools needs to be seen by a pediatrician. The stool has to be tested for routine examination and cultured. Till then prevent dehydration by giving ORS, Probiotic and Zinc orally. Mothers feed should be given frequently.

There could be several reasons for this struggling and coughing while nursing, most common reasons being incorrect positioning while nursing, and the correct position can be ensured by keeping her head at a higher level while feeding and also to ensure burping after each feed, also after burping, you must keep her in upright position for about 10 minutes before putting her down. Another reason why coughing and deep breath may happen is because she might be having a nasal block or cold (runny nose) which may make feeding a little difficult for her as babies are obligatory nasal breathers and while feeding taking breath becomes difficult for them. Mother's let down is not to worry about as it automatically gets adjusted according to the baby's feeding cycle when you feed her on demand.

This is a case of tinnitus. I think you need further investigation to look for cause for tinnitus. This problem may be due to ear problem, hypertension or because of neurological disorder.

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux In Babies

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux In Babies

Which baby doesn't spit up their food! This is usually not a reason to worry, but if this spitting up is chronic and is accompanied by other symptoms it is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Severe GERD can cause weight loss and breathing problems and thus, should not be ignored.

Reflux occurs when food is pushed out of the stomach and back up the esophagus. This is usually because the digestive system in babies is not yet fully developed. Vomiting often during the day is one of the most common symptoms of GERD. Other symptoms include:

  • A persistent cough
  • Choking or gagging while eating
  • Refusing to eat
  • Crying while feeding
  • Heartburn
  • Pain in the stomach

Most cases of GERD can be diagnosed by its symptoms and a look at the baby's medical history. In some cases, additional tests may be required, such as:

  1. Barium swallow: The child is given a chalky substance to drink. This highlights the esophagus, stomach and upper part of the small intestines in a special X-ray. It is used to check if there are any blockages in the digestive system.
  2. pH probe: A long, thin tube with a probe at one end is put down the child's throat. This is kept in the esophagus for 24 hours. The probe measures the levels of acidity in the stomach. This test is usually done when the child complains of breathing problems along with reflux.
  3. Upper GI endoscopy: Here the doctor puts a thin, flexible tube down the child's throat. At one end of the tube is a camera that allows the doctor to look into the esophagus, stomach and small intestine.
  4. Gastric emptying study: One of the causes of reflux is the slow emptying of the stomach. To check this, the doctor will mix a radioactive chemical with the baby's milk that allows a special camera to follow its path down the digestive system.

In most cases, GERD can be treated by making a few lifestyle changes. Some of these are:

  • Raise the head of the baby's crib
  • After feeding the baby, do not let him lie down, but hold him upright for half an hour or so.
  • Change his feeding schedule
  • Ask your doctor if you can try giving him solid food. Else, check if you can thicken his feed with cereal.
  • Make the baby burp after feeding

Most infants outgrow this condition within a year, so do not stress yourself and enjoy life with your baby.
