Hypotonia breastfeeding

Miguel A Marín Gabriel, Ana M Malalana Martínez, Ibone Olza Fernández
Lithium therapy is currently a cornerstone of treatment for mothers who suffer bipolar disorders. Those who wish to breastfeed their children are often told they have to decide whether modifying the treatment for their disorder or even avoiding lactation. Lithium administration during breastfeeding has been described to produce certain side effects such as thyroid disorders, hypothermia and hypotonia. To our knowledge, there are few publications where infants have no laboratory abnormalities. Here we present the case of an infant without renal or thyroid alteration while he was breastfed...

BACKGROUND: Dutch Youth health care is an easily accessible service where parents can ask for support for the healthy development of their children. The majority of the screenings and medical examinations show no abnormalities. Sometimes there is doubt about the severity of symptoms: the line between healthy variation and diseases or abnormalities can be rather fine. CASE DESCRIPTION: Patient A, a 3-month-old baby, showed signals of hypotonia and growth deficit while breastfeeding...

We report a case of clonidine poisoning in a breastfed newborn. At 2 days of life, this boy presented a consciousness deficit with drowsiness, hypotonia, and suspected generalized seizures. There were no cardiorespiratory problems outside of progressive central apneas beginning the 5th day. Further initial investigations were normal (extensive biological exams, cranial ultrasonography and transfontanellar Doppler, electroencephalography, and brain MRI study), excluding the main causes of neonatal hypotonia (encephalitis, infection, metabolic disorder)...

We report the case of a term infant of 39+1, born by emergency cesarean section due to suspected fetal distress with an Apgar test 4/6/8 and axial hypotonia with weak reflexes. After 52 days of hospitalization an individualized care plan was developed and applied based on Marjory Gordon's functional patterns model and NANDA domains. We used the NANDA diagnoses, interventions according to nursing interventions classification (NIC), and the expected results as classified by nursing outcomes (NOC). Through the care plan, the identified diagnoses and potential complications were resolved...

Late preterm infants comprise the fastest growing segment of babies born prematurely. They arrive with disadvantages relative to feeding skills, stamina, and risk for conditions such as hypoglycemia, hyperbilirubinemia, and slow weight gain. Breastfeeding these babies can be difficult and frustrating. Individualized feeding plans include special considerations to compensate for immature feeding skills and inadequate breast stimulation. Breastfeeding management guidelines are described that operate within the late preterm infant's special vulnerabilities...

We present a case of intensified therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of citalopram in mother and newborn infant after clinically observed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI)-associated symptoms 2 weeks until 2 months after delivery. The SSRI-associated symptoms observed in the infant (up to 3 weeks after delivery) were irregular breathing, sleep disorders, hypotonia, and hypertonia. We conclude that the SSRI-associated symptoms in the infant represent citalopram withdrawal effects rather than side effects caused by breastfeeding...

Vegan diet in lactating women can induce vitamin B12 deficiency for their children with risk of an impaired neurological development. A 9.5-month-old girl presented with impaired growth and severe hypotonia. She had a macrocytic anemia secondary to vitamin B12 deficiency. MRI showed cerebral atrophy. She was exclusively breastfed. Her mother was also vitamin B12 deficient, secondary to a vegan diet. She had a macrocytic anemia when discharged from the maternity. Vegan diet is a totally inadequate regimen for pregnant and lactating women, especially for their children...

A case is presented in which a medically fragile baby was breastfed by her foster mother. As a result, the child's physical and emotional health were improved. The mechanisms whereby human milk improves health are well known. The act of breastfeeding may also have an analgesic and relaxant effect as a result of hormonal influences and skin-to-skin contact. Many foster babies may benefit from human milk or breastfeeding. However, the risk of disease transmission must be minimized. Provision of human milk to all medically fragile foster babies is desirable...

The syndrome of infant botulism, characterized by constipation, poor feeding, hypotonia, poor head control, and bulbar involvement, is typically a monophasic disease. We describe a 7-month-old infant with a recurrence of illness 13 days after resolution of the presenting signs. The source of infection was unknown and the only potential risk factors were exclusive breastfeeding and decreased bowel movements, which by themselves cannot explain the recurrence. Although treatment with botulism immunoglobulin is now suggested for the acute phase of infantile botulism, its use for recurrence is controversial...

UNLABELLED: The age of discovery and initial symptoms of cow milk allergy can vary. Lactic acidosis is exceptionally associated to this allergy. CASE REPORT: A 32-day-old girl was admitted for a severe malaise with metabolic acidosis and hyperlactacidemia. There were no neonatal or family problems; breastfeeding was stopped on the 25th day. Fever was noted on the 29th day and her mother reported behavior anomalies followed by a severe malaise with unconsciousness between the 29th and 32nd day...

Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome (RTS) is a rare disorder affecting 1 out of 300,000 people, characterized by broad thumbs and toes, distinctive facial features, hypotonia, and developmental delays. In this study, 180 members of an RTS parent group completed a survey that elucidated breastfeeding practices of infants with RTS. Fifty-nine percent of mothers initiated breastfeeding with an average duration of 7.1 months. Overall, 48% of the women reported that their child had a good to fair suck, and 50% were fairly to very pleased with the breastfeeding experience...

Clomipramine is a chlorinated tricyclic antidepressant commonly used in the treatment of depression (1). The drug is widely prescribed in Europe and Canada and has been recently approved for use in the USA. Its safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding, however, has not been fully established. Very few reports on its effect on the fetus and neonate have been published (2,3). We report a case of a mother treated with clomipramine during pregnancy, and the side effects observed in the infant. The correlation between plasma clomipramine concentrations in the baby's blood and clinical effects are described...
