3 simple ways to prevent Bronchiolitis in infants


If you’re a new mother, sometimes, you become the most paranoid human being on the planet. Your imagination runs wild. A single wheeze can develop into a case of bronchiolitis in your head.
This paranoia—despite how freaky it is—can be good at times. It helps you become more cautious and take the necessary precautions.
After all, you can never be too careful when it comes to the welfare of your newborn. Your fear may not be unfounded either. According to studies, “Bronchiolitis is a leading cause of infant hospitalization in the United States.”
The gravity of bronchiolitis can vary—from mild to severe. Most cases are mild, which can improve within a couple of weeks, even without a specific treatment. On the other hand, there are some children that experience severe symptoms. In this case, they need intensive treatment in the hospital.
Early symptoms to watch out for include slight fever, dry cough, runny nose and unusual, rapid breathing
