3 Common Newborn Problems

Newborn babies keep their parens on their toes. There is always something to keep mom or dad in a state of worry! They have to keep up with the ever-changing world, adapt to a routine of feeding and changing and also learn to be a new environment. As parents its good to be aware before-hand of things that we can encounter. Here are three of them: 

* Abdominal Distension:  Most newborns have protruding bellies. But if your baby’s belly feels hard and swollen in between feeds, do some sleuthing. Nine times out of 10, it will be just gas or constipation, but sometimes a swollen belly can indicate a serious underlying condition.

* Jaundice: Jaundice is a common problem among newborns. Many infants have high bilirubin levels at birth as their livers are still immature. Most cases of jaundice in newborn resolve with time. But it can also cause serious problems. So, let your doctor prescribe a treatment to cure jaundice. An earlier theory that neonatal jaundice causes brain damage proved to be a false alarm 

* Respiratory Distress:  It takes a newborn a few hours to breath normally. But once her body learns to breath, she should have no more difficulties. Breathing problems in babies happen due to many issues.
