Answer: Hi dear Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of noisy breathing in infants. More than half of infants have noisy breathing during the first week of life, and most develop this by 2-4 weeks of age. Rarely, laryngomalacia occurs in older children, or adults, particularly those with other medical problems In most cases, the condition goes away without treatment. As your child grows and develops, the epiglottis will likely become stronger and no longer collapse during breathing. In some children with more serious laryngomacia or who have other defects, surgery may be needed. Hope for the best. It will surely developed by the time as yours infant
Answer: Hi dear! So we have a structure in our throat caled the larynx and it consists is vocal chords which is responsible for the sound we make .when the tissue above the vocal chords gets soft because of which it falls into the airways when the child breathes in which causes a noisy breathing called a stridor. This condition is not serious and normally it resolve on its own. It should be resolved when your baby is 18-20months . If it does not then do meet your doctor dear. Normally it does . Take care dear. I hope this information I helpful to you.

Question: if mother has diabetes during pregnancy, how it effects baby. please someone explain in detail.
Answer: If you have gestational diabetes, your baby may be at increased risk of: Excessive birth weight. Extra glucose in your bloodstream crosses the placenta, which triggers your baby's pancreas to make extra insulin. This can cause your baby to grow too large (macrosomia). Very large babies — those that weigh 9 pounds or more — are more likely to become wedged in the birth canal, sustain birth injuries or require a C-section birth. Early (preterm) birth and respiratory distress syndrome. A mother's high blood sugar may increase her risk of early labor and delivering her baby before the baby's due date. Or her doctor may recommend early delivery because the baby is large. Babies born early may experience respiratory distress syndrome — a condition that makes breathing difficult. Babies with this syndrome may need help breathing until their lungs mature and become stronger. Babies of mothers with gestational diabetes may experience respiratory distress syndrome even if they're not born early. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Sometimes babies of mothers with gestational diabetes develop low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) shortly after birth because their own insulin production is high. Severe episodes of hypoglycemia may provoke seizures in the baby. Prompt feedings and sometimes an intravenous glucose solution can return the baby's blood sugar level to normal. Type 2 diabetes later in life. Babies of mothers who have gestational diabetes have a higher risk of developing obesity and type 2 diabetes later in life.
