Popular Aussie blogger, Sophie Cachia, has shared a helpful, and possibly life-saving, tip all parents need to be aware of.
Sophie posted a video to Instagram showing the telltale signs that her baby girl, Florence, was unable to breath properly.
“After being taken in an ambo on our second night and told to come back to the hospital anytime we weren’t sure, this is what we took her back for on our last night,” Sophie wrote in the caption.
“The sucking in under her throat & her ribs means she’s working really hard to breathe. We used prior knowledge & listened to our gut and Jaryd took her in just before bedtime. Lucky, because the poor thing spent the night hooked up to oxygen.”
‘Her first trip to the snow saw her suffer terribly, and now a trip to warm QLD results in being rushed in an ambulance at midnight,’ Sophie wrote.
‘Petrifying, but as a parent you just have to run on auto pilot and get through… for them.
Sophie later added, “Florence is doing VERY well and loving being back in her own bed. Thank you again for all the love. Xxx”

A very important reminder.
This is something we were always advised to watch out for with our first son as well (Heartkid). Keep an eye on any difficulty feeding, or blueness around the lips as well. If they appear pale or floppy it is important to seek medical help.
