Find Out About Common Winter Illnesses Hero

Read about the More Than A Cold campaign, which aims to give parents advice on common winter illnesses.

Premature babies can find it difficult to fight off coughs and colds, especially over the winter months.

To help give parents advice and information Bliss partnered with TAMBA, the twin and multiple birth association, other charities and AbbVie, a biopharmaceutical company, on their More Than A Cold campaign.

More Than A Cold provides parents with information on common winter illnesses and how they can affect their baby. This includes information on the lung infection bronchiolitis, which is common in babies and young children.

The website also offers information for parents of premature babies, and provides useful information on what you should look out for to help you make sure your baby stays healthy this winter.
