JSL had a horrible night . . . as did mommy and daddy. The little guy was up crying at 12:30 and 4:30. He nursed like a champ during those times though. He never wakes up like this. I figure he was making up for barely eating all day. When he refused to nurse again this morning and was crying and clingy I called to make an appointment. At this point I just wanted him checked since he wouldn’t eat, was crying, and gurgling during the night.
He must have heard me make the appointment and was acting a lot better after that. Still he whined when nursing and wasn’t smiley. I decided with heading out to visit my brother, sister-in-law and meeting my new two month old niece, that I best get him checked.
JSL and I went to watch NHL and his class swim this morning. Then we went home for a few hours. My grandmother watched NHL so I wouldn’t have to drag both boys to the doctor.
Everything looked good in the ear and his lungs were clear. We need to finish the ten days of antibiotic and hope that the nursing strike is something else. It very well could be the ear and more teeth coming. *sigh*
In a week we are back there for his 6 month well baby visit where he will once again become a human pin cushion. Do the immunizations ever end?
I can’t beleive he’s still not feeling well–you must be at your wit’s end! Take care, and have a nice trip this weekend!
Re: Antibiotics – Be careful that he doesn’t get a yeast infection/thrush and pass it along to you.
Shawna: I think he was feeling better (once we made the appointment to get checked). Now I am not sure if he is getting something or just having HUGE teething issues that are making him cough and sneeze. It never fails there is always something on a trip to visit my brother.
Kmelion: We’ve been watching and it does not seem like anything is going on. We are using a lot of extra cream on his rear end and looking at his mouth. I use a shield when nursing, so it would probably help some (not completely). We certainly will be careful about yeast and thrush.
