My son had RSV when he was 4 Months old, he was in the hospital for I believe 2 nights because his oxygen was low... It pro pack took him a week or so to get better...

Her dr said we will monitor her if it gets worse she'll have to go to the hospital. She said run a humidifier 24/7 in the rooms she is in (living room & her bedroom). Keep the nose clear with suction and saline spray several times a day. It's been a week she's a little better (eating drinking fluids good. However, if your infant is very young it is very very serious. My niece ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks when she was only 2 months old. So she could have breathing treatments. It's good to take her to the dr, my dr prefers she's sees her verses a rush to the ER or Urgent care because they can get something else much worse. But if the dr listens to her lungs they can let you know if it's severe.

Another thing my dr had told me was to try to have her sleep propped up. Have her sleep in her swing that will help with the drainage. And remember you know your baby better than anyone if she doesn't seem right take her into the dr or hospital right away. If you get sent home because she's fine that's great.  When they are so little time is precious. I would rather seem like the crazy over protective mom and be on the safer side then not.
