My little man has been a bit off for the last couple of days, i had put it down to teething and a bunch of other things but just as i was putting Noah down to bed i think i have figured it out. A food allergy - i gave him chicken dinner last night and scrambled eggs for breakfast yesterday morning. He has been a weed ever sonce - i googled the signs ans symptoms of a chicken/egg allergy - the poor little man has almost all of them! On their own they are little things but when put together......
A runny nose, watery/puffy eyes, a horrible cough and difficulty breathing - i had asumed a cold.
Almost constant crying, moaning and difficult to settle- i asumed teething.
Vomiting and diorreha - 5 explosive nappies (slight blood streaks in the last one), vomited twice - again teething, maybe a tummy bug.
A rash on his face - i had at first asumed ringworm but then the rash moved from his ear to his nose to his cheek in the last 3 days.
I will bring him into bed with me tonight to keep an eye on him and will be going to the doctors tomorrow. I hope he starts feeling better soon, poor little man. Actually I might ring the doctor on call, just to be safe.
I was going to say the same thing about eggs. My pedi advised against them until age 1 just because a lot of babies have sensitivities to them until their digestive system is more mature (also they're more likely to cause allergies).
I dont know - i asked about an allergy or an egg intolerance and was fobbed off with "babies with an allergy will be swollen in the face and wouldn't have vomiting, he has a tummy bug that is all." I'm furious that they ignored me and kept asking if Noah was an only child - basically what were saying is "your just overreacting because he your first baby." I asked in the doctors and in the hospital and was ignored both times.
And we all know that a cold doesnt disappear after 2 days - he had a runny nose, puffy eyes, a horrible cough and was having trouble breathing but wasn't chesty at all, the next day he was fine. Thats not a cold.
...and baby number 2

It was probably the eggs, tuckr had a reaction too!
How dare those a-holes! Just trying to get you out of their hair!
What I'd he were to have a serious allergy to something and you don't know?! Ugh I hate doctors sometimes!
