    How long will it take to recover from pneumonia?
    A baby who gets pneumonia will need how long to recover?

    Does the second sentence correct?
    Do we need add time after how long?

    No, you don't add 'time' after "how long". "How long time?" is not right.

    How long does it take a baby to recover from pneumonia?
    "For" is omitted, is it correct?

    Hi, I'm realy sorry that your child felt ill with pneumonia. I recommend you to read this article about pneumonia treatment in children:

    Hope you will recover soon. Take care.

    Please see the corrections above, in red. We don't know for certain if the OP's child was really ill. It sounded like an English exercise to me.

    In addition, PaulMckein, please correct the information in your Member Profile.

    Jebris, there is no need to answer a question which has only been posted as an English grammar exercise. Please don't post unnecessary links.
