I didn't mean to offend anyone. I am open to all information, for or against vaccinating.
Gennaxo…you did not offend anyone! I am positive.
The first bout of bronchiolitis occurred after that vaccination. He hasn't been vaccinated since. The bronchiolitis already came back once and I'm worried he's coming down with it again. If anyone has experience with it recurring, regardless of opinion on vaccines,any information would be helpful.
My youngest is prone to recurrent chest infections. What we have done/are doing:
1. Vit D and C
2. We are in the process of minimisizing dust. I got rid of carpets and it seemed to help.
3. We do use bronchodilators at the first sign of chest infection.
4. I was recently referred to the lung clinic at the childrens hospitals. Honestly, I should have been referred before but did not know to ask . The doctor turned out to be be great (he read me quite quickly as low on the intervention scale) and suggested physical therapy for her. Apparently there is this device you can use to help them cough gunk out of their lungs. We go for therapy in 2 weeks and it is so nice to be pro-active in managing this, instead of waiting around for a chest infection.
5. Hand washing, good nutrition, outdoor play and proper sleep (I am a bit of a health zealot, actually, way more than I was before).
