Does anyone else's baby sound like she has phlegm in her throat? I think my baby cry too much, now when she strains herself her cries either 1) goes very high pitch and cracks (think of it as a guy trying to sing opera and his voice cracks lol) or 2) it sounds very hoarse. Worst is 3) where no sound comes out at all. Is something wrong with her and should I be worried (or even more worried then I already am lol) How do I get rid of the phlegm?
Newborn babies tend to be quite mucousy for a couple of weeks before it clears.. it's all the stuff from inside the uterus
My son was like that too. Quite noisy when he breathes, and there is a lot of sticky mucus. Asked the pediatrician, pediatrician said it will go off on it's own. Think it took 3months for the noisy sound to go off. But it depends on individual baby. Some goes away within a month
Thanks!! Was starting to get worried. Wa 3 months is a long time /: hehe tq
Let her sleep on side so that phlegm could come out when it's in her mouth. My doctor advised so.
She dnt like will fusssss alot if forced ro sleep on side
