Your baby has a viral illness probably due to a virus called the RS virus.The mucous on her chest means that her chest has been affected by this virus causing an illness called bronchiolitis. Antibiotics will not work against a virus infection.Bisolvon will not help in such a young baby either and may cause some tummy discomfort.Use infant saline nose drops to clear her nose. She will need these drops at least twice daily.She cannot breastfeed properly if her nose is blocked so use the saline regularly. This illness usually takes about 10 to 14 days to clear up. If your baby becomes short of breath or feverish then please have her seen by a paediatrician.
