How To Spot When It's More Than Just A Cold Hero

The winter months can bring with them a host of coughs and cold. Know how to spot when your premature baby has more than a cold.

The winter months can bring with them a host of coughs and colds, which premature babies can find especially difficult to fight off.

Bliss has partnered with TAMBA, the twin and multiple birth association, other charities and AbbVie, a biopharmaceutical company, on their More Than A Cold campaign, to give parents advice and information about spotting when their baby has More Than A Cold.

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.

Watch the video below for more information on the signs and symptoms of bronchiolitis.

Coming soon

New information to help you reduce your baby’s risk of catching common infectious illnesses will soon be available from Bliss.

This new Bliss resource will help you find out how to see the signs and symptoms of illness, how to prevent the spread of infections and how to get medical help if your baby becomes unwell. Premature or sick babies are more vulnerable to infections so it’s important to know what to do if you’re ever worried about your baby’s health. It will be available here on the Bliss website in the coming weeks.
