it's always one thing after another isn't it? When I thought I had it the worst, something else would happen to make me think again. I mentioned in another post that my 3-wk-old baby was having slight fever since Friday night. Doctor took urine sample for culture and today the results got back with some bacteria in his urine. Doctor will be starting antibiotics for baby.
What have I done wrong to have caused the urine infection in my baby boy? I heard urine infection is more common in infant boys than girls. Since baby is pooping with almost EVERY feeding, I'm cleaning him around the clock every1-2 hours. He's wearing disposables and I always clean off his poo with baby wet wipes.
Please advice... I am feeling rather helpless and hopeless! First it's the latch, cracked & badly damaged nipples, then mastitis, then thrush (still treating it in baby and me now), then baby's fever, and now this!
Is the urine infection causing baby to spit up and vomit more often (he's started spitting up about the same time his fever started)? His fever has been slight only and it goes on and off with the fever medicine. Also is the infection causing him to keep on unlatching and relatching during nursing, crying furiously for reasons I cannot fathom???
Sigghhhh..... I am feeling really down... so many things to worry about! Thanks for your help!
