My son was born 10 weeks premature last August. Since he was born right before RSV season, the doctors/professionals advised us to keep him at home as much as possible, stay away from crowds, etc. I have followed their advice although it has been pretty isolating at times! Apparently RSV season is over in May and by then we should be able to get out and about more often. He has been getting Synagis shots for the last 4 months (which has been a nightmare trying to get this stuff!) I am really looking forward to getting out in the world again and was just wondering what other people's experiences have been with this. I feel like some people think I am being crazy and overprotective but I refuse to have my son back in the hospital again! I also wanted to add that there is an organization called the Patient Access Network Foundation that will help those (who are insured) with part of the cost for Synagis (if you qualify). Their website is www.patientaccessnetwork.org.
