My dd is on her 4th round of antibiotics since she was born and she is only 3.5 months old. This time she has fluid in her ear and a touch of bronchitis. I have done my best to keep her healthy but with 7 brothers and sisters and half of them coming and going to school, it is nearly impossible to keep all germs out of the house.
I had been giving her acidophilus for her icky poops assuming that all of the meds were definitely contributing to the problem. They started to look like they were returning to normal and then she got sick again. But this time it started with incredible gas and rumbling in her tummy. Diarrhea returned and her appetite has nearly disappeared. Absolutely nothing changed in my diet. I eat rice, turkey, carrots, and pears. I have been wanting to add one thing at a time but each time I get ready to, her poops turn icky and she ends up with a cold. Anyhow, I know it is not from something I ate.
I have noticd that she is more congested in her nose this time. Can drainage from her nose cause an upset stomach? This started before we started meds this time so I know they were not the initial cause. I am hoping it is something as simple as her cold and it will get better. If not, I do not know what to do or where to go from here. I cannot cut anything else from my diet. I already do block feeding which has cured the green bloody poops. I am starting to get very frustrated that I just can't seem to bf'd my babies.
Thanks for any advice.
