How to understand if the baby is breathing correctly
The life of a person directly depends on the circulation of blood through the blood vessels. And to prevent various problems you need to know everything about the peculiarities of your child’s breathing.
Being in the mother’s womb, the fetus can already breathe. When the egg is impregnated, oxygen for vital activity is needed for the embryo. And the first 10 weeks he takes this oxygen from the reserves and only after the placenta, the fetus begins to breathe independently. This occurs somewhere for 10-12 weeks of intrauterine development. Placenta napkins attached to the mother vessels, very quickly absorb the substances necessary for life, oxygen is no exception. (We recommend reading: Pyeloectasia in a newborn baby).
Features of the breathing process at the moment of birth of a small man
During this period, the baby can already breathe and independently, and absorb oxygen with the help of the placenta. The full-fledged functioning of the lungs of a newborn begins often, only after the cotton that the obstetrician makes to the priest of the crumbs. But at the same time, he receives oxygen, which goes to the lungs through a still uncircumcised umbilical cord that connects the child with the mother. When the umbilical cord is cut, the baby begins to breathe on his own.
When observing and counting breaths, you should pay attention to some features of breathing, such as rhythm, as well as pauses between the process of inspiration and exhalation:
- Breath, his rhythm. For a healthy child, the following pattern is typical: first a few elongated breaths, then a small pause and a short exhalation. The human body has its own features of the device and it also affects breathing: the breath is the impulse to activity, the exhalation is the calm and relaxation.
- Rhythm of breathing to soothe. If the child is going to cry, he is agitated or nervous, then he should be offered to try the following breathing exercises: it is based on a certain rhythm: a quick and dynamic breath, an elongated and stretched exhalation, and finally a pause. This rhythmic breathing calms the nervous system, helps relax the muscles, relieves the child of unnecessary stressful situations.
- Sighs. If the baby often sighs - it's like a reminder from the body itself, that he already needs rest, then you need to put the baby - he should rest.
- If the baby has the wrong breath, or rather his rhythm, then you need to teach him to do this process correctly. Wrong breathing can be recognized by tempo - it is indistinct and torn, unequal breaths or exhalations, or they can sometimes linger. Another breath, can differ in that it is as if different frequency and superficiality.
