Avatar f tn I just had my son at 33 weeks 6 days. If anyone on here has had preemies before my question is how long after you brought baby home did you stay in the house? I didn't get a definite answer from my doctor or the hospital. He is now almost 3 weeks and doing well just above 6 pounds. I've heard other moms say right away is okay another said one year!!! I have errands and appointments plus my 5 year old has to be taken and picked up from school during the week.
Avatar f tn My little boy was born at 36 weeks and was in good health. His first year has been difficult. RSV. Milk protein allergies and eczema. Which pediatrician attributes to being early. He will be a year old on the 10th and he is off all medications and is slowly switching to plain old milk. Things will be fine. Being I. The hospital you will have the best care.
Avatar f tn RSV is a very serious complication with children under the age of 2, but it can affect anyone. It is a severe upper respiratory infection. If you've taken her to get checked out she has a clean bill of health, trust your docs! They take RSV very seriously. My newborn niece had RSV. She had a rattly cough in her lungs and had to have breathing treatments.
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!
Avatar n tn You know your body. Most likely you'll be told the same again. Take your own precautions, push healthcare staff to take you seriously. Just keep in mind that you are also traumatized by your preemie birth and it's causing you stress and worry. I have similar fears because mine were both preterm. There is a group on Facebook called Preemie awareness and support. It's all preemie parents and they're all sensitive and knowledgeable.
Avatar f tn s office unless they are open where you are. Weezing in that little of a baby can lead to serious problems and could be RSV a severe resporitory illness that usually requiers hospitilization. Weezing is airway restriction and waiting can cause harmful things to the body, loss of oxygen which means less oxygen to the brain and body and lungs!!!!! Please go ASAP this is serious and needs medical attention NOW!
Avatar f tn OMG you were me. For the first set of weeks I used to hold him and rock him to sleep alone in his room and just cry and beg and plead to "God" or whomever it is watching over him not to take him and bargain that "He" could take me after Aidan was 18 and off to college. I mean hard cold seriousness in my pleading and beliefs. And then after his RSV and the lack thereof care in that friggen ER "Oh he's just got RSV and not a preemie. So what?
377012 tn?1283965435 uuggghhh it was like acid coming up green watery substance. my son was diagnosed with RSV yesterday and i was wondering if im not preggo then could the RSV affect me causing me to feel this way?????
163557 tn?1244112942 in the PICU.. for RSV! He gets his synagis every month, so it really is a pretty mild case of it. They are just monitoring him just in case. I think he'll be able to come back home today. The nurse yesterday said she's never seen an RSV kid that healthy. He barely even has anything for them to suction out of him. And he hasn't required oxygen or anything. Hopefully he already hit his peak (which is supposed to be between days 3 and 5).
377012 tn?1283965435 on the 17th he started wheezing, breathing rapidly, running a fever of 102.6...18th ne started getting diarrhea, nasal congestion along with the other symptoms, last night he began vomiting and his cough sounds croupy....could this be from the flu shot or could it be pneumonia...any advice!!!!???????????
220217 tn?1209679677 Update - the preliminary test showed a very faint positive RSV test. They are doing a spinal tap now. I feel so horrible. What did I do wrong and what can I do to help him? :( Very sad!!
Avatar f tn My 11 week has rsv .. He was full term .. Has any other mother had this in a infant ..
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 Finally a few days ago i took him in again to the ER n they found out he has a virus newborns have been getting its Called Rsv n if they would have tested it before they would have found it i was So pissed!!! So now today we got out of the childerns hospital they sent him home with oxygen but to me he still seems bad but they that he was Fine!!
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.
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???
593530 tn?1263847957 I brought Brody to his pediatrician last week because he was very congested. After a nose swab was tested it was determined that he has RSV. Since it's a virus it can't be treated with antibiotics, so she instructed me to get a cool mist humidifier and keep his nasal pasages clear by using saline solution. The only symptom he's had is the congestion. There's no fever, coughing, mucous coming out, etc.
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...
1347128 tn?1333810296 My 3 month baby had RSV when he was 6 weeks old, but since then, he has a phlegm sound, that is always there.
Avatar n tn My eleven year old daughter has experienced odd symptoms from about four weeks of age. It seems as though she gets everything that comes along. We are frustrated to say the least. The list seems long: -Elevated biliruben for 5 weeks at birth -RSV and double pneumonia at 6wks -ongoing colds and pneumonias (no less than annual) and strep rashes -RSV at age 2 again requiring hospitalization -Age 2-4 spontaneous vomitting on about a 30 day cycle.
Avatar f tn RSV is one thing that I am really worried about. That is why I have taken Anna to the doctor 3 different times for the same cough. 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.
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 n tn having a simple clear runny nose and occasional cough that can be treated at home, to severe difficulty breathing that may require hospitalization. Other symptoms might include a low-grade fever, sore throat, headache, and irritability. Younger children, especially those under 2 or 3 years old, are most at risk for more severe symptoms, such as high fever, wheezing, difficulty breathing, a persistent cough, or apnea. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Have they tried him on Flovent and or ventilan?? Also have they checked him for RSV??? My daughter was born preemie and I am not stranger to breathing problems as a whole even just from my life and my friends and family. You should see if it is possibly RSV. Does he want to sleep lots? Does he have a discharge from his nose still? They will test it through his snot. Send it away and know within a day or so. Try that. Also ask about flovent or/and ventalin...
