I am concerned about my daughter. She has been feeling sick for a while but suddenly started running temps. We took her in and a culture showed a bacterial infection so she is now on antibiotics, her first time ever.
She was in for her 1 year check up just a few days before this. She had lost 4ounces in those few days.
She is SO miserable, she is nursing like a newborn. She has never really been all that into solids, but now she will have nothing to do with them. Even all the frequent nursing is not maintaining her weight. She was also dehydrated when I took her in, only 1 wet diaper in a 14 hour period. Other diapers had bright yellow stains but no weight.
My ped suggested pedialyte by syrynge to help keep her fluids up, she is just really not all that thrilled about it. I will keep nursing her as frequently as she likes, it has been as frequent as every half hour, and hope that she does not loose anymore weight.
I don't know that I have a question here, I am just worried.
