The shaker baby syndrome is a condition that affects the baby’s respiratory system, causing him to cough and sneeze.
It’s commonly associated with the first trimester and early pregnancy, but it can also occur in the later stages of pregnancy.
The symptoms of the shaker include difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat, aching muscles, and muscle spasms.
The baby will also feel as if he’s choking on air, which may be more severe during the first few weeks of pregnancy because the body’s ability to fight infections has slowed.
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all pregnant women in the United States avoid shaking babies during their first trimesters, to help prevent any serious infections.
The CDC also advises that any mother who has been diagnosed with shaker syndrome should seek medical attention immediately.
“It can affect the fetus, so we want to make sure that any newborns that are in the uterus are getting the right amount of oxygen and not contracting any serious conditions,” Dr. Jessica Hagan, a maternal and fetal medicine physician at the University of Minnesota, told Newsweek.
“We want to keep them warm, and that’s a big part of what’s happening in these babies.
It can affect how the mother and the baby are breathing.”
To help prevent the infection, a mother should not shake her baby while in the hospital or during other activities that can result in an increase in the risk of infection.
The best way to deal with the condition is to stay away from the baby during the birth process.
“The more you’re in the labor and delivery environment, the less you can do to help the baby,” Dr Hagan said.
“If the baby has any respiratory problems or other respiratory problems, it’s important to get the mother out of there.”
There are a few other things you can try to make your baby breathe better, such as making sure that the baby is not overheated, making sure there are no other people around, and keeping your baby in a warm environment.
There are several medications that can help reduce the risk.
“Antibiotics, including some of the newer ones, are very effective at reducing the risk,” Dr Anthony Fauci, a pediatrician at NYU Langone Medical Center and an expert in shaker babies, told NBC News.
“But they are not the only ones that work.”
Dr Faucy, who specializes in maternal and newborn health, recommends that pregnant women stay home when the baby comes in, especially during labor and birth.
“There’s no reason why a newborn should be in the house,” he said.
However, a baby can be kept in a hospital room if it’s not in immediate danger of contracting shaker, so the best advice is to avoid being around him.
“You want to be mindful of the baby and make sure he is being monitored,” Dr Fuc said.
