The ‘harmless’ movement your newborn baby makes can be deadly

Being a new parent is hard work – you lack sleep and you have to study.

Keeping your baby happy and healthy is the main goal, but difficult to realize every red flag.

And some people may not immediately realize that your baby is actually unwell.

A undulating head looks cute and is simply your child looking around or reacting to something.

But Tiny Hearts Education has issued a warning to all parents that this means they need immediate help.

A video posted on the account shows a baby lying in his parents’ arms, swaying and swinging his head.

A clip later showed him lying in a hospital crib with his chest heaving, his head still covered with fat.

Explaining to parents, the text on the video said: “It may look harmless, but a bobbing head like this is never a good sign in babies.

“Head bobbing is a sign of severe respiratory distress.

“At this stage, the active air bubbles make it difficult to breathe so they will have a hard time delivering enough oxygen to the lungs.

“This LO ended up testing positive for RSV.

“The family spent five nights in the hospital, three of them in the ICU on a sedated CPAP machine.

“If you notice your LO doing this, I want you to get help quickly.”

They also recommend that parents “take a video of their baby’s normal breathing” to compare if they are worried.

RSV is a very common virus, and almost all children have been infected with it by the time they are two years old.

In older children and adults, RSV symptoms include cough, cold, runny nose, and fever.

Some children under the age of two, especially those born prematurely or with heart disease, may suffer more serious consequences.

RSV can develop into bronchiolitis, an infection of the lower respiratory tract that makes breathing difficult.

The NHS said: “About a third of children in the UK will develop bronchiolitis within the first year of their life. It usually affects babies between three and six months old.

“By the age of two, almost all infants will have RSV and up to half will have bronchiolitis.”

The initial symptoms of bronchiolitis are similar to those of the common cold but can develop over a few days into a high temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius (fever), dry and persistent cough, difficulty feeding, rapid or noisy breathing (wheezing).
