The newborn and newborn are worried about many mothers who interpret it as a sign of a cold, flu or an allergy. The truth is that sneezing in babies is very common and in most cases, harmless.
Sneezing in babies has beneficial effects
The stranger does not necessarily mean that your baby is cold or has the flu. It can sneeze for many reasons and often sneezing is beneficial because it helps clean the airways, preventing infections or colds.
The stranger in babies can have many explanations:
• It may be a way to clean their airways;
• By sneezing he can clean his neck;
• It can be a reaction to different allergens: dust, feathers, animal hair, cigarette smoke and may mean that it has irritated airways;
• It may be an attempt to quickly remove something that blocks the respiratory system;
• It may be his way of getting used to the new environment (especially in the first month of life) and even with the air breathing;
• It may be a reaction to strong light.
In some cases, sneezing in babies may mean that the airway is irritated. The most common irritants of the airways are smoke (even outside, not only at home), animal hair, dust and mildew.
In winter, if the house is very hot, dry air can contribute to nasal irritation and sneezing. If sneezing becomes a problem, it can be treated with nasal drops based on salt water. A room humidifier can easily improve the situation, simply jump and fill a bowl with water placed on the radiator.
The constipation can also be a sign that the system of elimination of impurities from the body works well. Probably something clogs the baby's airways and then he sneezes to clean them (babies can't blow their noses in a handkerchief like adults, so they instinctively use the sneeze). It is not good to prevent sneezing in babies.
Also, the sneeze can clog the nose if it is clogged. When you breastfeed the baby, his nose is pressed to your chest and this can lead to clogging of the nose. After breastfeeding, the baby can draw air into the chest or sneeze to clear his airway.
Sneezing, a sign of cold or flu?
The stranger, if not "accompanied" by fever or cough, is most likely not a symptom of cold or flu. Any small impurity that gets into the baby's tiny nostrils will annoy him and trigger the urge to squeeze, so it doesn't cause you much trouble because of it. If you feel like it's cool, it's best to consult a pediatrician though.
Your baby may be sensitive to bright light and you may notice it sneezing when suddenly exposed to it. This is normal and does not present any medical risk, it is a special sensitivity that specialist doctors do not know how to explain.
This sensitivity is called ACHOO Syndrome (English: Autosomal Dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst). This sensitivity is especially pronounced when the baby is suddenly exposed to a strong light source, for example if you stay indoors longer and hang out with the sun, and may cause one or more sneezes.

"Alien is not always a cold symptom. Sometimes it is an allergic reaction to something in the air. Pollen allergy, commonly referred to as" fan fever ", is one of the most common chronic diseases. Everywhere in the world, dust in the air produces the most common problems for people with allergies. Respiratory symptoms of asthma are most commonly caused by allergens in the air (substances that cause allergic reactions). "

The opinions of the mothers
Generally moms get a little scared when their baby is sneezing, thinking it has cooled down. Following medical checks, however, they are assured by doctors that if the sneezing is not associated with cough, fever or other signs of a cold, it means that it only cleanses the nose and nothing else. Babies can also sneeze from the sun, dust or any new smell.
"Babies sneeze because they clean their airways. As for the handcuffs, they are cold in babies because they can not adjust their body temperature yet. , if it's hot it's good, if it's cold it means it's cold "- lalymarcean, Cluj Napoca.
