Why your baby’s crib may be leaking, but you don’t know it yet
You may not know the cause of your baby crying at birth, but your baby may already be leaking.
If your baby is crying during the first month of life, and you’re unsure of its cause, the best thing you can do is to try to find out.
You may be able to identify it by the type of tears your baby has, the location of them, and the way they are spread.
A baby that is born in a low-lying area may have no tears at all, and this can be an indicator that your baby might be dehydrated.
You can check for dehydration in your baby at any time during the day by looking for your baby wailing.
Your baby will probably have one or more of these signs: • A few droplets of sweat or a thin film on the skin of the face • A tear or a tear that runs along the face or back • A drop of mucus on the head • A wet spot or patch on the back or belly • A droplet of blood on the cheek or eye• A wet or dry patch on one or both cheeks or eyes• A drop on one of the hands or feet.
If you suspect that your infant is dehydrated, you should get an ultrasound and an X-ray of the baby to see if your baby was born under ideal conditions.
Your doctor may perform an Xray of your newborn baby and then recommend a hospital appointment to check your baby for dehydration.
If the baby is dehydrating, your doctor will tell you how much fluid your baby needs and will recommend ways to improve the condition of your infant.
If both your baby and your doctor think that your newborn is dehydrate-proof, your baby can be taken to the hospital and given intravenous fluids, if needed.
If they decide that the baby isn’t dehydrated or that your other baby is, they will give you the option of bringing your other child to the NICU for a test.
Your other baby may need IV fluids, too.
Your NICU is a room-sized incubator that allows your other children to be kept in the room as they grow.
You and your baby are placed in a crib in a small room with a TV and a crib on top.
The incubator is on the floor and your NICU staff will monitor your baby to make sure he or she is hydrated.
Your nurse will also monitor your infant and help your nurse with the baby’s feeding.
If baby is doing well and you are unsure about your baby, you can also call your doctor’s office or a lactation consultant to check on your baby.
This can be done anywhere in the world.
There are many NICU services available.
If a nurse is unable to perform an appointment or to check for your infant, they can refer you to a lactational specialist who will perform a test on your infant to determine if the baby needs more fluids.
If so, the lactational consultant may refer your baby home with the NICUs medical team to get the necessary fluids.
It’s important to remember that you can’t expect to know the exact cause of the problem without seeing your baby or having a medical test.
