We've got the Sickies

Moms, I need your help. 

My baby is sick. 

Let me explain. For six weeks now he's had a cough. The cough began with an ear infection. Then? The ear infection went away. Two weeks later, he had some "left over bacteria" in his ear. This also came with a cough. After another round of antibiotics the bacteria was gone, but the cough was not.

A couple more weeks down the road, more bacteria. Are you freakin' kidding me?!

So? We went back to the doctor. We got more antibiotics. We went 10 more days, had yet another follow-up appointment. No more bacteria, but he still had a cough.

This means my sweet, precious baby boy has had an awful sounding cough for six long weeks. The doctor doesn't seem too phased. But this momma, is starting to freak out. Our pedi mentioned a possibility of allergies last week, but didn't say much more than that. 

I'm at a loss y'all.

I love the blog world because I get the best advice and guidance any momma could need. And now? I need your help, for real. 

Have you been through anything like this? Does your little one have allergies? Milk allergies? Pet allergies? How did you figure out you were dealing with allergies and not something else?

I would really appreciate it if you'd share this post. Please, please, please. I need opinions from y'all. I appreciate any help you can give me and little Baby J!

  1. has he been eating anything that he doesn't usually? I've never heard of a child having an allergie that causes a cough. I'm sorry hang in there! It's so hard when babies are sick. Try a little vapo rub to see if maybe that will break up the cough.

  2. I don't have a baby, but I do know that because of the dry weather we've been having, I've been having a cough/sore throat for the past month and a half due to allergies (which I NEVER had before this year). Maybe your little man is irritated by the heat and the stuff that is in the air due to no rain and lots of wind. I hope he feels better soon though-- I know it must be so hard for you to not know exactly why he isn't feeling well. He will get better! And he's precious by the way...what a cute little face!

  5. I talked to a doctor that said you should get his daddy an iPad and the cough will be gone. Things to try...... :)
