Don't use a vaporiser with bronchialitis. Croup it is useful but apparently 'wet' dosnt help bronchialitis -two different peads told me this so I take it as true, but that's all my reasearch extends to.

Here's part of an article on bronchiolitis and vaporisers
"In most cases, bronchiolitis can be treated at home. Parents and caregivers should make sure the child gets plenty of fluids. Feed the child smaller amounts more often, breastfeed more frequently, or give 1–2 extra bottles each day. Sometimes it can be difficult to encourage babies with bronchiolitis to accept fluids, but it is important for their recovery that they do.
Use a cool-mist vaporizer or humidifier in the child's room or run hot water in the bathtub or shower and sit nearby with the child. Extra moisture helps loosen the mucus and clear out the airway so that baby can breathe more easily. Be sure to clean the vaporizer or humidifier daily and keep the child away from hot water to avoid burns."

She is already propped because if reflux. I haven't got the vaporizer out because she sleeps in my room and it makes it hard for me to breathe. I'll see how she goes over the weekend.

My 17 month old dd just had RSV... Going on about 2 weeks now. .. She's happier and playing fine but still has a bit of a rattle/cough.
The hospital told me day 4/5 is usually the peak. .. but symptoms of coughing can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks!!
I also used a vaporiser in her room at night and I definitely think it helped.
