Please go ahead
How can I help you today?
doctor my daughter is one month old today during her bath she suddenly stopped breathing
For how long?
for few second
and she was feeling uncomfrtable
Can you tell me approximately how many seconds
was she crying at that time? and did she suddenly stop crying also?
i have taken her to doctor ..doctor said that her nostril are very small and due to soap smell her nose was blocked
doctor she stopped crying at that time
sorry cant tell you the exact time
Approximately how many seconds was she not breathing
for how many second her nose was closed
I don't need exact time, just an approximate
is it not safe for my daughter to use soap while bath
like 10 seconds, or 20 seconds or 30 seconds?
You can use soap for giving bath
but you should be careful when you are cleaning her face
make sure the soap doesn't go into the nostrils
and one more thing some water was also coming out from her mouth
The water is just the saliva
okay, then don't worry
just be careful when you give bath next time
how long it will take for nostril to be normal
The nostrils will be fine, it is just the soap clogging her nostrils
all babies have small nostrils
as they grow up their nostril size will also grow
so don't worry,
and doctor my daughter is born through surgery so is it safe that she can take bath regularly
just be careful while giving bath
at how many weeks was she born
is she a premature baby?
she was born on 38 weeks
she is a full term baby
so you can give bath to her regularly
but it is not necessary to give bath daily, you can do that every 3rd day
Is there anything else you want to discuss with me?
No thank you doctor for your help
You are welcome
Thank you for chatting with me today, goodnight
