  • My youngest daughter had RSV when she was about 7-8 months old. It was tough but we both got through it. The things that helped her the most was the tylenol and motrin and keeping her very close and cuddled up with me. She seemed to sleep the best with that comfort which made her more and more active day to day. Other than that, there really wasn't much else I could do for her. Oh...I did give her a few cool baths which really helped with fever and all. She DID NOT like the cool water but she felt much better after them. Hope this helps a bit and I hope she feels better soon. :-)
