So sorry your lo is sick!! Ihope he gets well soon! Don’t blame yourself. You can’t keep him in the house forever.  Did they give him medicine for that?

Oh, I hated when my lo’s got sick.  Sounds like he’s a little better.

@Jess1483:  Oh, my daughter did that too.   Apparently, the little valve to her stomach wasn’t fully developed yet.  She’s 27 yrs old now.  Did fine after all.  lol.

Oh no! I hope your little guy feels better soon. Have you tried the Nosefrida to help clear his sinuses? A little breast milk squirted up each nostril should help too, it soothes the membranes in his nose, helps loosen congestion and breast milk has antimicrobial properties that will help with anything opportunistic looking to sneak in while his immune system is compromised.

@saraja87:  Years of nursing school and that never came up! You learn something new every day! 

I’m so sorry to hear about your little guy. Sick kids suck, feeling helpless sucks but I’m sure you did everything you could. Hope things get better for you two.

My 5 month old just finished 6 days in the pediatric ICU for severe RSV, so I can relate.  It’s a nightmare as a mom.  He goes back to day care tomorrow and I am dreading it:(  Most of what helped him can’t be done at home (oxygen, breathing treatments, chest physical therapy), but here’s a few things you can do:

– Humidifier.

– Pedialyte.  When he was having trouble eating (was vomiting everything because he was so congested), they gave him 50% pedialyte and 50% milk in a bottle and he was able to keep it down.

– Keep him elevated/sitting up as much as possible.

– Lots of cuddling!
