Becoming a parent is the most amazing gift in the world, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the easiest. As soon as our children are born as parents we want to make sure that they are safe and healthy in ever possible way. Babies do not come with a manual, but when becoming parents we need to be aware of the difference diseases that could affect our babies. This month is RSV awareness month, making it the perfect time to educate to Learning Signs And Symptoms Of RSV Disease.
Learning Signs And Symptoms Of RSV Disease
First of all, what is RSV disease? RSV, standing for Respiratory Syndical Virus, is a common seasonal virus that spreads between the months of November and March. Unfortunately, it is the leading cause of hospitalization for babies in their first year of life and as parents we need to make sure that we are educated about the disease.
All babies are at risk of RSV, babies born prematurely are more susceptible, merely because of the fast that their lungs are not fully developed. The good news is that there are resources and websites such as RSVProtection.com that can educate parents on RSV, how to prevent it, and what to do in case their child developed the disease.
