In brief: Options

Close attention to nutrition, caloric intake, weight gain, possible vitamin supplementation is also advised.
Supplemental oxygen, diuretics and avoiding infections such as RSV. It is advisable to check with you pediatrician regarding the use of a monoclonal antibody against RSV, a type of viral infection which can result in hospitalization.

In brief: Varies with severity

It really depends on the extent and severity.
Time is the best treatment. Depending on each child, supplemental oxygen may be needed, inhaled medications, diuretics medications, etc. Follow up by a pediatric pulmonologist, or a pediatrician with experience dealing with those babies, is recommended.
