Common Questions and Answers about Rsv and preemies

rsv

Avatar f tn I would be really careful my daughter was a preemie and as soon as we got home she ended up back in the hospital with rsv because this is the time of year its out. And because she was so small she almost died and ended up in a childrens hospital for 5 weeks. It was horrible.
284738 tn?1283106819 he just got his 3rd and last synagis until rsv season starts back up again in october. the good news is, rsv season is almost over. unfortunately, our little ones got it at the very end. :( i know it's still out there even when it's not in season, but it's not as bad... hope your little one gets better soon!!
551885 tn?1300383822 Last month was supposed to be the last but they called a couple of weeks ago and told us that half the kids that are coming in sick are testing positive for RSV and if Cassidy got it she would go back to the NICU again so I guess this month will be the last.
220217 tn?1209679677 I loved Mylicon, but still didn't help my boys sleep, did quiet some of the screaming and crying. I hope it continues to work wonders for you! We have battled RSV, and the vaccine isn't offered to all kiddos. I think they only offer it to preemies or high risk kiddos, they have to really do some paperwork to push it through insurance. My boys were term and big, so we were not concerned. Carson got pneumonia at 11 weeks, Cameron got RSV at 10 weeks.
Avatar n tn I'd wait too until the flu season passes.....it's really bad this year. I'd wait until mid to late April. I had a preemie in August (6 weeks early)......I didn't let ANYONE see her until she was two months old. That was in October..... Does your baby receive a monthly shot called "synagis" that is an RSV vaccine? My little girl does and I think that has helped her not have one cold at all this winter!
220217 tn?1209679677 sometimes these things happen. my little cousin was born with RSV and she is now 8 years old. She absolutely fine!! You and your family are in my prayers! Don't beat yourself up about this. It's nothing you did.
224256 tn?1212257023 my baby was born in the summer, so there was no cold or flu season at the time. still, my doctor insisted no crowded places like restaurants or malls til at least 4 weeks. my girlfriend's ped said no crowded places til 8 weeks. quick trips to the grocery store are ok. since it is winter, i would personally wait a bit more. there are some awful bugs out there, many of which would land a newborn in the hospital. especially rsv and the flu.
5752933 tn?1383533437 I had my daughter at 34 weeks due to low fluid. She weighed 5lbs 9.9oz and was completely fine and healthy.
Avatar f tn I had my son 5 days ago via c section cuz of preclamsia and he was 35 weeks and 4 days and he's still in the nicu but he's doing really good and everything cleared up pretty quick except the only thing is he needs to stay in there cuz he can't eat that well or latch on good so they need to sometimes feed him through a tube. My baby was a chunk at 7 lbs 6 oz and 18.
Avatar f tn Who has had a early delivery and had another baby after? What should i expect? Can it happen again and am i at high risk?
Avatar f tn We were in the NICU for 3 months. You can expect baby to get a couple blood transfusions and be on a ventilator for at least a month. Feeding tube for almost your whole stay. Any other questions just ask. :) everything will be fine. The alarms will scare the crap out of you every time. Dont worry. Nurse comes in every time it goes off.
Avatar n tn I have an 11 month old with rsv today is heart rate is avg 176bpm and his resp rate is 50 plus. This has been ongoing, he is hospitalized and on ventilation treatments. He is listless and we are worried, how long can a babies breathing and heart rate work this hard before he goes into distress.
593530 tn?1263847957 my daugter is 4 weeks old and she got RSV. She was hospitalized for 3 days and was being monitored for her oxygen levels. She is still coughing a lot and its hard to watch her. Doc said it can take upto a month or 2 to fully recover.
1368291 tn?1299629804 Saturday he was having lots of nasal congestion and coughing so I took him to the ER. He tested positive for RSV so the last few days have been scary. We are doing a cool mist humidifier with eucalyptus oil at night, albuterol breathing treatments and keeping his nose suctioned out. I hope he gets better soon but I did learn that apparently you cant trust family to let you know...
Avatar n tn My son is going to be 2 months old soon and a couple of days after he was born they told me he has RSV, i have been in and out of the hospital so many times and he dose not seem to be getting any better. I have read everybody stories and How they lost their loved ones and i am so scared that it might happen to my son. Please is there anything that i can do to prevent this from getting worse???
Avatar f tn My son had rsv and the hospital kept him and thankfully we were released in a few hours because his breathing was better.its scary to do that at home, honestly they should of kept him he's only an infant ! Please contact a doctor I honestly don't think he should be home my son was two months old when he had it, and my husband ask if we can go home with him and they told us some pretty scary stuff .
Avatar f tn That depends in the severity of the RSV. Right now my daughter (she's 18 months) has a very mild version of RSV.
Avatar f tn My cousins little one had it. I think he was 3 or 4 months.
Avatar f tn She emailed that if you baby has a cough with no fever, please take them to get checked for RSV. My DD is 6 months old and has had a chronic cough for a long time. It seems to get better and then starts all over again. I have taken to the doctor for it three times, the last time a week ago today. Everytime they check her really good and say it is just drainage from a cold. She has not had any fever and feels good. Last night her cough seemed a little worse, but she still feels great.
Avatar f tn My baby has just turned 6 month old, and I took her to the doctor because she was wheezing and had a runny nose. THey tested her for RSV and i did not hear anything because of the holiday but they just called today and her RSV test came back possitive. They already prescribed her an inhaler is there anything else I can do. She is coughing ALOT.
Avatar f tn They always say her lungs are clear and have never even mentioned RSV to me. She feels fine during the day and is eating well. She has no fever and isn't seeming to have trouble breathing. Do you think she could still have RSV? My reason for not going back to the doctor is that where I live, flu and a serious stomach virus are really bad. I don't want to take her in and expose her to those things unless absolutely necessary.
Avatar f tn Mine were both preemies I carried 34 weeks with my daughter and 36 with my son and they are saying already I will probably deliver early with this one but I have issues with high BP towards the end of my pregnancy so I may just be me and my medical issues
Avatar f tn RSV is a resportory disease that starts as a common cold and then starts to shot down the resportory system very scary. We finally found out what it was that my daughter had. She had strep in the stomach and intestines. Instead of the strep staying in her throat she swallowed it. She got worse that ever after I posted this, so I brought her to a different hospital and they figured it out. thanks for responding.
Avatar f tn I just had my beautiful son on Nov 30 th! And already he is sick! My baby was taking to hospital 3days ago. And I found out he had RSV it's a viral affection u get from being around someone sick. My daughter had a bad cold and I assuming he got it from his big sissy which is only 1 by the way but it's sad because how do u tell ur 1 old to stay away from there baby brother.
Avatar f tn You have to meet certain criteria...
973741 tn?1342342773 ) I fear Influenza so much I have been doing masks and Listerine for years but all it takes is that one exposure (RSV) during a lapse in following my own advice. I am curious whether Influenza could be eradicated in the future.
Avatar f tn My son also just got over RSV. Did they do a chest xray when you took him in? The reason I ask is because when I took Jadyn in they did a chest Xray and swabbed for RSV. The xray came back clear and his breathing "sounded fine" so they gave me the choice of taking him home and caring for him myself.
Avatar f tn I took my 4 week old to the ER and they told me he has RSV. They just gave me a paper on it, They didn't really tell me what to do except suction out his nose. I read the paper ad it told me that in mild disease that no specific treatment is necessary. So I guess he is only a mild case, but I don't know how to tell if he is getting worse. I read on another site that family history of asthma puts him at a higher risk for becoming a severe case. I am know wen he is getting worse?
