Post subject: Baby with CPAP
Hi, babys had a few medical problems since birth. The one thats not getting better is her breathing. She used to have an airway in her nose, bt that was removed when she was one. Her breathin improved until she had her palate repair op. Ive been given a cpap machine to use at home with her. The problem is that shes terrified of the machine nd wearing her mask.
I dont want to force it on her but she doesnt understand its there to help as shes only 22month old. Has anyone got any tips that i can try. Im still trying to get her to play with the mask to get her used to it buts its not helping
Any help would be greatly appreciated x
