Keegan is a bear and not sure what is going on here....
Sunday-Tuesday he had an on and off temp of 102 and super cranky. No other symptoms. No runny nose, cough, diarreah, nothing. Sleeping fine, eating fine. Not seeing any signs of teeth. So just figured something viral and needs to run course.
Tuesday-today. No fever, I think once it was 99....but that is no biggie. He is still napping and sleeping fine. But when he is awake he will not let me put him down. Period. If I try he clinches to me and Cries and screams if I do. And will scream and cry the entire time I am not holding him! Even when I am holding him there are sometimes he is not consolable. I have been using orajel, motrin, and different things to chew on just incase it is teeth, but still not seeing anything coming. And it doesn't help. He wants to nurse constantly!! I don't like seeing my baby like this!
I took him to the doctor this morning. Not our normal doctor. Bad decision! He was the doctor that caused DD1 to despise the doctor for a long time. He cleaned and cleaned out his ears. Making him horribly upset. I think he looked in each ear 4x. At one point was going to say he had and EI then dug more and changed his mind! He was screaming! He screamed so much that be now has busted cappilaries all over his face (DD1 does this too!) red dots all over his face from the screaming! Telling me all the outrageous tests we "could" try if it doesn't resolve itself. I will NOT be seeing this doctor again. Still NO answers.
He has been drinking Soy Milk for about 3 weeks now, in addition to nursing tons! Thinking maybe that is not settling???? Doctor shot that one down pretty quickly and said if it was upsetting him then he would be having diarreah. I think I am going to stop the soy and see what happens. We went soy instead of cows milk because DD2 is really allergic and don't want sippys of that around.
I am at a loss....My baby is uncomfortable, I WANT to help, and I am exhausted from having a cranky baby!
Any thought or experiences on what could be going on?
