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?
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
