Iggy's on Flovent

Forgot to mention this in the last post...but yes, my 11-month-old is now on Flovent 44. Not surprising considering:
  • He was born in respiratory distress and spent his first 24 hours in the NICU
  • He turned blue when he was about 4 months old (he was fine)
  • He has had three illnesses involving serious coughs in the last 9 months, including the one last week

And to my friend who was asking about an alternative to Pulmicort, ask your doctor about Flovent and QVar, which are both in metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) rather than administered via nebulizer. Much faster, easier, and child-friendlier.
