    Default repeated bronchiolitus

    am up with my daughter again as she coughs and is unsettled. she is just under 6 months old and has had bronchiolitus four timesnow.

    first time took us to nicu and second time just kids ward.

    would love to know of other parents experiences, ifeel like i cant take heroutside of thehouse for fivemins before it brings on a nighttimeepisode of sickness and thefear that it will get worse.

    am scared to have guests over and am feeling so cut off and lonely.

    feel like i habe lost touch with my partner from thestress etc

    My son is in hospital for it tonight! I have lost count of the times he has had it this winter. Last time was only 10 days ago and he was in hospital then. I'm seeing a respiratory specialist as I don't believe it's just a virus as they keep telling me at the hospital

    My boys have not had bronculitus bad enough to need a hospital visit. But i have been to hospital enough with them to know staff at the hospital we frequent. We joke that we have a VIP bed in the ER.

    The longest stay I have had is 3-4 days with DS2 with croup. Was the most tiring week of my life.

    My dd2 had bronchiolitis when she was 5wks old and was hospitalized for 2wks. She has never had it since then and she is 2 now

    I'm not sure why she has escaped so lightly since then. Other than extended bf and flu vaccines she is not on any special diet or medications. Also in daycare 3x a week.

    My son had repeated croup and bronchiolitis from about 9-15 months. It was awful, although he was never hospitalised thank god. I really feel for you. It does get better! That was his first few months in daycare and now it's his second year and he is rarely sick.

    Don't quote me on this but I didn't think it was contagious so don't get it from other kids?

    My DS has recurrent bronchiolitis since he was 3/4 months old, he's almost 2 now. He's had an overnight stay in hospital once. Just recently my GP referred us to a paediatrician to look into why he has had so many bouts of bronchiolitis. So far she hasn't found any reasons why he has been so susceptible. I'm just hoping the warmer weather will help him.

    It really sucks. Hope all your LO's are on the mend soon.

    Bronchiolitis is most commonly caused by the RSV virus but any respiratory virus can lead to this state.

    Bronchiolitis is a virus and is definitely contagious. Any child admitted to hospital with bronchiolitis is put into isolation as it is so easily passed on.
