The throat is located on the upper chest side that makes up the back of your body. You can see it behind the ears and between the middle ear and the top of your head.
The lower jaw should be straight and the mouth open, but the larynx is held open very loosely. Make sure the lips don’t stick apart or the jaw is not closed.
Why are babies born with larynx problems?
If you have a baby boy, it may be because the larynx is too small. He or she may have trouble swallowing and may need to have a tracheotomy for a cough for example.
The larynx is the upper part of the throat and is located on the outer end of one of your ears, known as the mastoid or alveolar ridge. The alveolar ridge is a structure that holds the ear in place during birth.
The alveolar ridge, or mastoid bone forms in the front of the throat and the part below it. The mastoid bone is found just behind the eardrum when you are born. It is divided up so that it can be passed down to the other side from the top and down through the back of the throat and mouth.
It may not look like much. It may be a very fine line that seems to have no connection anywhere. That is because it is still not perfectly formed.
The mastoid bone is usually soft and floppy making it easy for it to move around. It is like a huge zipper, so if it moves too much, it can cause difficulty with food and swallowing. This is why it is so important for mothers to hold their infants while they are feeding. If they push or pull the baby down on their chest and it hits the mastoid bone, it could cause problems.
What happens when the baby starts being born?
The baby may be stillborn or it may be found while the mother is still nursing. During this stage of life, the baby can breathe on his or her own, but it is still difficult for them to communicate.
How do you know if the baby is breathing?
The best way to know when a baby is breathing is to turn on your baby monitor.
Your monitor shows when the baby is breathing on his or her own. This can be heard from the monitor or you can hear the baby start to breathe from the other end of your baby monitor, which is hooked up directly
