Winter months are almost upon up and that can only mean one thing for parents as the cold and flu season brings on runny noses and sniffles.
A post was shared on Facebook this educational video of another flu symptom which may be not obvious that could result in you having to take an unexpected trip to the doctor.
Her 4-week-old, Luna, was sleeping soundly, yet her breathing was a little unusual as she seemed to be struggling with her inhalation.
In the post the mother explains:
“I stumbled across this on my phone and thought it may be useful to share When Luna was 4 weeks old she had a really quiet day of sleeping and barely any crying (unusual for Luna!)
I was watching her sleep next to me and realized it didn’t look right. I unbuttoned her baby grow and this is what I saw. Sucking in at ribs is a sign to get your baby or child to the hospital.
She had bronchiolitis and her oxygen levels were very low. Luckily after a night on oxygen, she made a very good recovery.
We’re heading into the dreaded season of non-stop colds coughs and viruses so thought it was worth a mention xx”
As per Wikipedia: “Bronchiolitis is blockage of the small airway in the lungs due to a viral infection. It usually only occurs in children less than two years of age. Symptoms may include fever, cough, runny nose, wheezing, and breathing problems. More severe cases may be associated with nasal flaring, grunting, or the skin between the ribs pulling in with breathing. If the child has not been able to feed properly, signs of dehydration may be present.”
