inhaled water...


whilst bathing my daughter tonight i think she may have sniffed up some water she coughed and cried and carried on as normal, massage, bottle bed, but has not woken up with a cough and sniffly nose, now i cant decide if this was already coming or if she is 'dry drowning' or something terrible like that. i have called nhs dirct and am waiting for a phonecall back. i cant decide if im just being a paranoid wreck or if i shud be worried. anyone else got any experiences to put my mind at ease???

Always best to phone and put your mind at rest if your worried, thats what they are there for.
I wouldnt worry about it too much though as this sort of thing happens all the time, the sniffly nose is probably where she has just shocked herself a bit and sucked a bit of water down, dont know if you have had it happen to yourself but it can sting the back of the throat a little (done this untold amount of times swimming) the body will naturaly assume its trying to fight off an infection or a foriegn object in the throat so the runny nose is where its trying to flush it and the cough is just probably where it itched a little after.
Our bodies are very quick and over judgmental when it comes to trying to fend off anything it thinks shouldnt be there.

Im sure your lo is fine, but if your worried ever just give dr or nhs direct a call. My boys have done this so many times when swimming, or even playing in the bath, they have been ok after, cant remember if they had runny nose or cough though sorry.

Babies cough to get it out of their lungs as would you or I. If she's been settled all evening I'm sure she will be fine.
