My son had RSV as a small infant and this could have killed him, the hospital sent me home with no medicine and basically told me Good Luck my son's life was in my hands now, I was angry. I refused to let my son suffocate to death slowly because that is what basically happens...so I geve him Dark Karo Syrup with water because his formula was making him more congested. Then I sunctioned his nose out constantly because he could only breathe through his nose and used saline sinus drops to break up the mucas as well so my nose bulb would work better. He is alive today. The water was the best thing I could have given him. Hope this helps. Also keep a humidifier going at all times on cool mist .and. keep air circulating with a fan as well

I also kept my baby propped up on 1 flat pillow to help him breathe and feel more comfortable.
