Apparently it is supposed to be a really bad year for respiratory illness. My 32 weeker is almost 2 and she always gets sick, perhaps because of her lack of time in the womb or perhaps because she shares and mouths everything. We always just ride it out and because she didn't have lung issues, it hasn't mattered. When she is sick, I keep her home, and these days are torture. Now I have a 38 weeker who has severe laryngomalacia and he doesn't breathe well. The NICU has said we cannot get him sick this year and are holding on to him but will definitely send him home before this issue is completely resolved. The doctor even said we should limit visitors and not go to the grocery store. My 32 weeker goes nuts if we stay in the house, and I can not imagine keeping her on lock down. Any tips? We need to keep him well when she is sick, keep her in activities that don't exposure her to as many germs, keep him from exposure when he is out, keep her entertained while on lock down, or some combo. Help!
