Avatar f tn A teacher that I work with has a baby in the hospital with RSV. 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.
Avatar n tn you also might want to ask your cardiologist or primary doctor about if your little one should recieve the synagis vaccine. this is to help lesson the effects of RSV (this is a viral infection) most kids can fight it off, if they are healthy to begin with. i am not sure if your little one would qualify. I wouldn't see why not. this infection from what I was toldif it affects newborns who are premmeis have a heart condition, lung issues and a low immune system.

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 RSV is more prevelant those months but can happen any month and is very dangerous for a newborn. My son had it at 2 weeks and being told about intubation, medovac and permenant lung damage is not worth it.

Avatar f tn I had mt baby at 36 weeks.. when he was only 18 days old he was rsv positive. Has anyone ever gone through this?
220217 tn?1209679677 i did some reading on rsv these past few months for some reason...and ds had a bit of bronchitis when he was quite newborn still...and its all related to rsv so i asked his ped when we went and he said yup thats what it was but no one usually knows what i mean..ds was put on some syrup for it and it cleared up...its so scary though-he is much better..we have the choice for a vaccine here and i dont remember what its called..
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 n tn mine had it as a newborn. doc will probably prescribe a nebulizer with albuterol.
Avatar n tn 10 week old - adm. with RSV..1 yr old - adm. with RSV...1 yr old - adm. with bronchitis..2 yr old - adm. with neumonia, then for colapsed lung, then for double pneumonia. Everytime it was between Nov. and Feb. Then, on Sat. Sept. 8th he developed a fever with no other symptoms. The fever lasted until Sun. evening. I started giving him albuteral and took him to the doctors on Mon.The doc said his lungs were clear and the fever gone but had ulcers in his mouth.
Avatar f tn How long are you going to wait to take your newborn out into the world?
Avatar n tn well the baby is very lucky because my first prgnancy i was told that i was very low on amniotic fluid and i had to have an emergancy c-section because the doc said the baby would sufficate without the fluid so thank heavens that wasn't your case. but ask the doc to run some test to check the baby out and don't stop til they give you a clean bill of health!
Avatar f tn She was my first born baby, she weighed 9lbs 6 1/2oz, and although I had to have a C-section due to my genetic bone disease, she was delivered only 4 days before my due date, on March 19, 1999, so she was full term. To make this long story as short as I can, we hired a state certified babysitter to watch her during the day while we worked. On April 4th of 2000 we went to pick her up and the babysitter left the room to go get her from a back bedroom.

1347128 tn?1333810296 My baby had RSV at the beginning of november, he was hospitalized for 3 days 2 nights. he was 6 weeks old. But since then, he has a phlegm sound and boogers, he has trouble breathing speacially during the night and when he wakes up. He uses humedifier all the time, and I am just sad that he doesnt get any better today his pediatrician told me he is negative for RSV, what else can I do to help him get better?
Avatar f tn My six month old has RSV! He was tested positive for it two days ago. He is not eating much at all and on amoxicillin. His fever is gone now but he is still breathing fast and still very raspy! The hospital told me that RSV would not affect his appetite it was because his nose was stuffed up???? How long does it usually take for his breathing to get better?? I always thought that most babies with RSV were hospitalized. Isnt there something else they could give him to improve his breathing.
2006603 tn?1331329327 I will be having my baby soon, I am 38wks tomorrow and I was wondering when did you take your baby out for more than just a short shoppin trip or something? Me and my fiance are planning an outing for the first wednesday in august, we plan on going out to eat and maybe doin a little shopping at the mall and we want to take our lil man with us, he will be a few weeks old by then.
Avatar n tn She still had the cough the day she died and she was also due for a well baby checkup the day she died. The autopsy did state she died of RSV complicated by Bacterial Pneumonia. My question is how fast can all this develop and then a baby die? A week, months or how long? Could it have developed and worsened over the 3 months that she had a cough? Please help me out with these questions or any information that you can give. I appreciate all your help.
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 I take my babies where I have to go but avoid UNneeded trips or trips to show off baby. I don't let people visit baby for the first few months either because they don't care if there sick or been around sick people, all they want is to hold and breathe on baby.. germs is the last thing on a visitors mind but the first on mine.. you do not want a small baby that is sick having trouble breathing, throwing up and running a fever..
