In brief: BPD
Bronchi pulmonary dysplasia is more common in premature babies who have on respirator for a long time.
There is no natural therapy for them. Avoiding triggers like cigarette smoking, avoiding infections might help to heal the lungs faster.

In brief: Not really
Vit a rx in the neonatal ICU might help to decrease the chance and severity of bpd, if started within a few days.
High dose caffeine is known to decrease bpd, when compared to low dose. But, after discharge from nicu, there is no magical cure except for optimal titration of o2, diuretics, balanced nutrition and immunization (rsv and flu), which help the long term outcome. No exposure to smoking.
