I haven't posted in a while and hope you are all having a wonderful summer.
I'm not sure this is the right place to post but...
My DS (18 months) is drinking copious amounts of water (3 litres a day). I am still bfing but being in my 6th month of pregnancy, my milk supply is down to a trickle at best and I only bf 2-3 times a day at this point (he eats 3 meals a day now plus snacks) but his appetite is being affected by all the water he drinks- but then again, I understand they eat less in the summer when its hot....
A urine sample 6 weeks ago showed no signs of anything. It is very hot here but still, 3 litres??! I am getting worried about his little kidneys as this has been going on for nearly 2 months.
I also think he has an obsession with his sippy cup and maybe this is also the problem so I am changing his bottle today.
Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?
Do anyone of you use homeopathic treatment instead of allopathic? His ped gave us phosphorus 200CH in July and his thirst subsided just a little bit but is now on the rise again. She told me to give another dose today and wait 2-3 days to see if there is any change, and pending that, go for another urine test and also blood test.
Meanwhile, I change his diaper every half hour! I can't do cloth diapers anymore as they soak through within minutes.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
