Private post please Hi I’m looking for advice off someone with similar situation. My 1 year old has been in and out of hospital since she was 7 months old some times she’s in for weeks at a time with breathing problems (low oxygen levels) it’s a nightmare. The slightest sniffle of a cold and we know it’s going straight to her chest and we will be in the hospital with her in a day or two. Every time we have been to hospital they say it’s chest infection or bronchilitous and put on antibiotics. She’s had X-rays that show mucus and fluid on lungs. Due to see lung specialist in June. Any advice please at wits end. Xx
