Baby breathed in Bathwater!


Hi girls,

Whilst bathing my three month old this evening, she got very excited as usual and turned her head to the side whilst jiggling around and breathed in water. I instantly scooped her up and she was coughing and spluttering for a few seconds and then did two burps and was then her usual smiley self within a minute or two - it scared the life out of me!

but..... i read a thread on here a short while ago about dry drowning and now i am a bit worried - she seems fine and is asleep next to me ( she would usually be up in bed!), but I dont know if I am being a little nuerotic or not!?

has anyone else's little one ever inhaled water either in the bath or perhaps swimming? Should i be worried?

Thank you x

My LO has a couple of times sometimes he inhales milk too. What I do is lift his arms all the way over his head (opens airway) til he breaths properly. and then I pinch him on the leg so he will CRY to let it out. Works everytime for me.

My LO has done this a few times. Not turning his head and breathing in water but when I accidentally get it in his face. He will cough and gag a little but he's always fine within a minute or two. I'm sure your LO is fine.

I can't count the number of times my little one has choked before (he tends to go crazy on the bottle because i normal BF him and he chokes because he is sucking to hard). He has been fine, your little one will be fine hun, don worry

My LO did that too while bathing but I accidentally turned him to wash his back and somehow he inhaled water. We scooped him and pat his back and he cried for a little and then he was fine.
