    Default Bronchiolitis

    My little guy has been in hospital the last few days with bronchiolitis and a mild case of pneumonia (he was on AB's for the pneumonia). He was in hospital due to rapid breathing and not eating and was put on oxygen and also a drip. His breathing is much better now and he's eating a small amount however he is still coughing and wheezing quiet a bit.


    Anyone have experience with bronchiolitis and can tell me how long it normally lasts? We have a Drs appointment tomorrow but I thought there might be some people in here who might have been through the same thing.

    Usually bronchiolitis is worst day 3-4 then gets better, mostly improved by day 6-7 but they can have a lingering cough that lasts a few weeks

    My DS got bronchiolotis at 5 months and was awful seeing him struggle for breath through the coughs. He rattled for a few weeks afterwards but took about a week before he was his usually smiley self.
    He is 16mo now and has it again (Dr said yest) but is no where near as bad as before. Hope your little one feels better soon x

    Edit -snap Shani! Hi

    DS2 was hospitalised for bronchiolitis when he was 2 weeks old. As pp has mentioned, it is generally worst day 3-4 then should start improving. This was the case with DS2 - we were in hospy over days 2-3, then sent home with strict instructions to keep a very close eye on him. He started improving over the next couple of days but did have a lingering cough at night for probably another 7-10 days.

    This was the exact case for us, except DS was 7 weeks old.
