Do you notice that your newborn is breathing too fast? These could be the reasons why:
Transient Tachypnea of the Newborn
Transient tachypnea of the newborn (temporary rapid breathing) is a self-limiting, benign condition common in newborn. It happens because of the baby’s delayed ability to clear fluids from their lungs.
Infection or Illnesses
Some illnesses, especially those that affect the lungs, can make it harder for the newborn to breathe.
Aspiration happens when babies inhale fluids, such as milk, into their airway or lungs. Besides the newborn breathing fast, they can also exhibit other symptoms, like weak sucking or coughing.
