Wheezy 9 month old Lock Rss

Hi everyone.
My 9month has an upper respiratory viral infection and has developed a wheeze. We were given some liquid steroid which we started today.
Any tips on how to get him to sleep better? He doesn't like lying down at the moment.
Thanks
Most RTIs pass without the need for treatment and you won’t usually need to see your GP. Symptoms usually begin 1 to 3 days after exposure to the virus and can last 1 to 2 weeks. Because your baby has such small nasal air passages, congestion and mucus can cause trouble breathing. Most babies do not eat well when they are having trouble breathing. Use a small bulb and saline drops to help clear the air passage. Put 1 drop of warm water or saline into each nostril. Gently remove the mucus with a bulb about a minute later. Your healthcare provider can show you how this is done. A humidifier in your child’s room may help.
Hey, how's your little one?
Because of small nasal air passages, congestion and mucus can trouble breathing. Most babies do not eat and sleep well when they are having trouble breathing. Use a small bulb and saline drops to help clear the air passage. Keep humidifier in your child’s room which may help to your baby. Give him fluids in small amounts frequently thorough the day.
Personal hygiene plays an important role. All family members in the home should wash their hands often. All caregivers should wash their hands after being with child. Ask other people also who touch your baby to wash their hands first.
I hope the baby is better.

As mentioned in a previous post saline drops and a humidifier go a long way to help loosen the mucus in the baby’s nose and thus easier to expel. While selecting the humidifier, you will make a choice between a warm mist humidifier which diffuses warm mist and a cool one emitting cool air.
Either type will perfectly moisten the air and alleviate the respiratory tract infection symptoms. However, the warm units heating functionality is usually a concern for many parents who fear their babies may get burns should they trip or touch the appliance. Should your choice of a good baby humidifier be a warm mist, keep it out of the child’s reach. You can view more considerations here https://bestairconheaters.com/best-humidifier-f... .

May the baby grow in good health.
