RSV Awareness #RSVProtection



I am a worrier. I was worse when my little ones were younger. There are so many germs that our little ones can come in contact with. Both of children attend daycare full time, so they were always around other children that were sick.

RSV Awareness is being talked about more and more, which is great! The more people are aware the more they can tale precautions.

So how can you keep you children healthy and germ free?

Wash your hands frequently. I tell my children to wash every time we come home from a store, even if we used a wipe in the car.

No smoking allowed. Smoking around babies is a non anyway. My mother used to smoke when my children were little. When she visited she had to change into a shirt that I kept at my house. and wash her hands.

Wash baby toys and bedding often. I used to always see the caregivers at ,y daughter’s daycare washing the toys., It always made me feel good about her being there.

Stay away from crowds. Keep your babies away from large crowds and anyone who is sick. Just this past month I stayed home for a gathering because their children were sick and I don’t have any young babies!

RSV Infographic

Click here to download the RSV Awareness fact sheet. There is a lot of great information on this sheet. Did you know that almost every baby under 2 will have contracted RSV, but only 1/3 of their moms have even heard about it? Symptoms are similar to a seasonal cold.

Symptoms to watch for are runny nose and decreased appetite, coughing, sneezing and fever. Wheezing or difficulty breathing may occur.

Most children will recover fine in 1 to 2 weeks, but babies born premature or who have lung or heart problems may require hospitalization.
