We've been to two emergency rooms in two different hospitals. Started 4 days ago, he was running a fever of almost 104. Doctors said "not to worry, its a virus, which will go away in 7 days". The fever is much less now, off and on ~100-101. He is even smiling form time to time.
He lost a lot of weight during these days. But the main problem, he is not eating at all. He is refusing to take my wife's breasts and even bottle. He is just crying and spitting everything out. We tried to pre-pump the milk first to help him get started, and he will actually eat for a minute while the milk is really flowing, but then he is refusing to try to suck at all.
When we are giving him the bottle, it looks like he does not understand how to suck on the nipple. He just chews on the nipple in the right or left side of his mouth, but not much is coming out. We are trying to feed him from the spoon, and its barely working, but very very slow. It takes an hour to feed him about 4oz, as he is always crying.
My wife is crying, thinking that she is losing the milk and extremely worried about his health, and I of course.
Don't know what to do and how to help him.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
