Oxygen and why babies may need help breathing.

There are many medical reasons for why babies may need medical oxygen when going home such as difficulty catching breathe, apnea and many other airway problems that develop after birth.

Your baby may need a certain type of medical oxygen which may be an oxygen concentrator which can be used throughout the day or night and also allow you to travel.

As long as you have back up oxygen you will never run out.

Careful planning will ensure you can always rely on enough oxygen to last you whilst at home or travelling and keeping all of this attached to your pram whilst out of home and also in your baby’s room at night.

If your baby requires medical oxygen to help or aid breathing speak to your doctor’s to seek the best advice, equipment and what to do at home before you return to make it comfortable and safe for what your baby needs.
