    Comfort mom or the baby? Does mom say baby is uncomfortable? How long has she been on the meds?

    I wouldn't suggesting to having her stop the abx - no way there is something going on for sure. She knows her baby best - and if it were me and my doc said UTI and then I had baby on meds for 4 days and baby was still suffering *I'd* go to the doc again.

    I'm glad she trusted her gut to take her in
