Sorry for being MIA the last few days.
My baby boy hasn't been doing well. He isn't eating or wetting his diapers. But the weird thing is - although hes not eating, hes having diarrhea.
He refused to eat all together this morning when he woke up (after not eating almost 13 hours ) so I knew something was wrong.
I took him to the pediatrician and they discovered he has an ear infection.
Remi got a super bad ear infection 2 months ago. Long story short - over a 3 week span, he had 5 oral antibiotics, one shot antibiotic and IV antibiotics, 104* temp and an overnight hospital stay just to get rid of it. They even performed spinal taps, catheters and xrays 'cause they thought he had meningitis. So when this kid gets ear infections- his doctors act fast.
We just started the antibiotics an hour ago so i'm hoping he gets better fast.
Please forgive me if I'm not around the next few days. We have to hold off on all BM and formula for 24 hours and only give him pedialyte every 2 hours to flush out his tummy and try to hydrate him.
Lets hope this works fast!!
