Common Questions and Answers about Rsv in newborn babies


Avatar f tn What a coincidence!
Avatar n tn It usually manifest itself as a cold in adults and older children, but can cause serious problems in infants. RSV can cause lower respitory infections, breathing problems, pneumonia or even death. According to statistics, over 125,000 infants are hospitalized annually with Respiratory Syncytial Virus, resulting in more than 500 deaths. RSV can be contracted by placing your hand in your mouth after you have come in contact with an infected person or surface.
Avatar n tn They seem to be ok, though my youngest has RSV....the heavy breathing that babies develop. Will newborn be at risk too? Thank you for your professional and unbiased help.
Avatar f tn I agree with bathing them once a week in a baby tub. You could always wipe them up in between with warm wipes!!

Avatar f tn Wow, have you had her evaluated for RSV? CJ was very similar as a newborn, turns out when we all went to get out flu shots when he was an infant, he picked up RSV, which is essentially a persistent cold in infants and generally only causes problems with preemies or otherwise immunosuppressed infants. His simply presented as a persistent slew of cold symptoms and a chronic productive cough. Anyway, it caused me a great deal of grief, though admittedly CJ seemed less bothered by it than I was.
Avatar f tn can adults get RSV and how old are u when u stop being able to get it
220217 tn?1209679677 I know how hard RSV can be! I cant imagine having two babies with it!! Evan is sick again =( He just got over RSV(Bronchilitis) 4 weeks ago, and now he has his cough again. I hope it goes away soon!! Thats great about the shots!!! I wish we could have gotten them, but its definately good they give them to preemies!
Avatar f tn How long are you going to wait to take your newborn out into the world?
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
Avatar n tn I would not worry so much about blood draws, RSV is a virus that should pass in a week or so usually, but it causes such an issue with breathing. I would check to see if they have a monitor for pulse ox- like Peek said, will check the oxygen levels. When they dip below 90 most Dr.'s will really watch it.
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 .
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.
Avatar f tn I always thought that most babies with RSV were hospitalized. Isnt there something else they could give him to improve his breathing. So confused and worried. It seems the hospital thinks this is no big deal.
Avatar n tn newborn babies born pinkish white colour will become white when they grow older?when will the babies get their actual colour?
Avatar f tn Okay you suppose to wait 6weeks but to me it depend on the weather if you have your baby in summer it can be earlier then that but winter babies I think need to stay in the house 6-8week just because it's flu season but everybody is different just make sure your little one is dress properly for whatever kind of weather you in
Avatar n tn a cold will, and if you are implying your baby is premature then you need to call his or her pediatrician as premature babies are eprone to RSV which is a very dangerous respertory illness in children yet alone a premature infant.
Avatar f tn Some babies are born with chalk teeth.. And I've heard of babies teething as early as 2 months but most get their teeth around 6 months, some sooner..
Avatar f tn Why do you have to take care of others when you have a newborn? Sorry just curious.
