Once you find that your baby is spitting up milk, you need to deal with it in time, because the opening of the baby’s esophagus and the trachea are connected in the throat. When spitting up, the most feared is when the milk suddenly reverses from the esophagus to the throat, just when it is inhaled, and it strays into the trachea. The so-called choking milk. When the amount is large, the trachea will be blocked, breathing will not be possible, and hypoxia will endanger life immediately. When the amount is small, it can be directly inhaled deep into the lungs to cause aspiration pneumonia. Mild spilling and spitting up usually adjust the breathing and swallowing actions by the baby himself, so there is less risk of inhalation in the trachea. Parents only need to closely observe his breathing and skin color. If a three-month-old baby has a lot of vomiting, please deal with the following methods:
1. Side to side
If vomiting occurs when lying down: quickly turn your baby's face to one side to prevent the vomiting material from flowing back into the throat and trachea due to gravity. Use a handkerchief or towel to roll your fingers into your mouth or even your throat to quickly clean out vomited and spilled milk and food to keep your respiratory tract smooth and avoid obstructing your breathing.
2. Pat the back
If you find that your baby is holding his breath or not breathing or his face turns dark, it means that the vomiting matter may have entered the trachea. Immediately put it prone on the adult’s lap or bed (hard bed), and pat his back four to five times to make it cough up. .
3. Pinch the bottom of the foot
If you have done all these steps, but the baby still has no response, immediately stimulate the soles of their feet (or pinch or pinch). The purpose is to make the baby breathe because of pain. The most important thing at this time is to let the baby breathe in Enter the lungs to avoid hypoxia. At the moment of suffocation and life-saving, the most important thing is to buy time to send air (oxygen) into the lungs, rather than wasting time thinking about how to take out the foreign body. This concept is very important.
During the above processing, the baby should be transferred to the hospital or clinic at the same time, so that the professional pediatrician can do further processing or examination to be completely relieved. If the baby breathes smoothly after choking, it is best to find a way to make him cry hard (crying is a lot of breathing), so as to observe the baby's inhalation and exhalation when crying, and see if there is any abnormality (such as voice change) Weak, difficult to inhale, severely concave chest), if any, get medical attention immediately. If the baby cries loudly, is full of breath, and has a ruddy face, it means that there is nothing serious about it for the time being, and you can observe it for a while. Sometimes, an X-ray of the chest is also necessary.
