well Roran was just puking up everything he was drinking last night and actually like upchucking and dry heaving type thing .... i dont recall him ever doing that before.he was clammy feeling and so i tried to BF him when he was up all night and was desperate .. IT WORKED! i was happy i could nurse him.
he held that down and passed out. he was in a fitful sleep all night it was terrible i havent slept in like two days ... well the first night i was just not comfy .. but then last night !! Roran had the sickness bad ..
so today had a tempo i hear its called a low grade temp ..it read 98.6 but i did it in his armpit so i have to add a degree im told .. so it was 99.6 ...
then later today 99.9 (adding a degree)
gave him little remedies fever stuff ... twice today
hes isnt peeing alot so i gave him 4oz of pedialyte.
umm yeah but hes not taking in alot of formula ... at least he isnt spitting it up today like last night. but giving the pedialyte no doubt cancels out some of the formula needed today.
still though hes had like 2-3 diapers today? one was a poo .. i just KNOW he normally pees more then that ...
more pedialyte tonight gals? what you think?
and if he gets to 100 temp i take him to er? if during night and pedi not open .. or am i supposed to go in at diff temp?
OH and he was so .. like a stuffed animal last night ... just laid around and did nothing ... poor baby ... i almost took him in last night but he wasnt that high a temp .. i hear that babies can be fine with a temp of 99 if they arent acting sick or hot or anything...am i wrong?
what you ladies think?
OMG had to add .. DH is sick .... this has been a rough couple of days!
Poor Roran If your DH is sick with similar symptoms I would think he probably has the same thing. Definitely keep the fever down with baby tylenol and/or advil (provided he doesn't throw it up) though I would keep a close eye on him for dehydration, it doesn't take long and he needs to get enough fluids. If he gets any worse in any way or the symptoms persist I would probably take him to the ER to be on the safe side.
Watch his output. If he doesn't pee for more than 12 hours, you should probably take him to his doc or the ER. I'm sorry he's been so sick. Keelan had something like that at around 5 months and he was just so pitiful.
