Newborn Girl Almost Dies, Her Father Has A Big Warning For Other Parents

A father in Los Angeles recently went through a harrowing experience with his infant daughter, and he wants to make sure that others are aware of some hidden dangers. According to the Los Angeles Post, his daughter developed Respiratory Syncytial Virus or RSV for short.

The virus is fairly common among children, but it’s highly contagious and can lead to serious problems for some little ones. Although the symptoms resemble those of a common cold, the infection can quickly worsen. That’s what happened to this dad’s little girl, who nearly died as a result. She’s on the road to recovery, but he wants to spread the word so others are aware.

“Please make sure to wash your hands before handling little ones. And make sure to wrap them up when heading outside into the cold,” he says.

Dr. Ari Brown provides a little more info on how the virus itself can be spread.

“RSV is not only spread through droplets, but through contact on surfaces like the grocery cart that your baby touches that another ill child was coughing on an hour earlier,” he says.
