My daughter is a 24 weeker and she is 7 months old now. I'm worried because my three year old son and I were sick all weekend and now my daughter has a cough and is sounded congested. She isn't on oxygen anymore and her stats seem to be fine, but she is diagnosed with chronic lung disease. Should I be worried? Should I call her doctor now or should i wait til the morning?View Thread
Thank you. Kyla was able to come home today. She gets breathing treatment every four hours or as i feel needed. She is doing much better. Before she left the hospital her lungs sounded nice and clear. Which was a huge thing for me to hear. I'm still a little worried about her but nowhere near as bad as I was last night. It's so nice to have my baby back home. And I find it to be a big deal Kyla held her bottle tonight with her last feeding with no help from me at all.View Thread
Thank you again. Today Kyla took a little turn for the worse. She started wheezing tonight so I took her to the ER. She has a bad cold in her lungs. She ended up staying the night but it does look like she will be coming home tomorrow with some new equipmentView Thread

I did call last night. I was told because she doesn't have a fever and it doesn't sound like it's in her chest to just keep an eye on her. I was told to let her sleep in her swing or car seat. So far today her cough has died down and she started eating more tonight during dinner time. Thank you for your advice.View Thread
