I awoke to puke and a feverish baby at 3am. Poor Teagan is a sad little sack today. What sort of things do you do to comfort your LOs when they're under the weather? My mom always heated me up chicken noodle soup or mac and cheese and let me watch TV all day. I think T's a little young for that.
Tylenol wasn't doing much for her 102 degree fever and her ears really seemed to bother her. We swung by her pedi. She has a double ear infection but her lungs are clear and she's well hydrated. Doc prescribed antibiotics for the ear infection and lots of boob for everything else. In other news, she's now 29" tall and 22.3 lbs! We must have caught her right before a growth spurt at her 9 month appt because she's grown 1.25"!
He also said that the blister thing on her gum that I posted about awhile back is nothing to worry about and that I shouldn't be concerned that she's refusing to eat solids because she's more than making up for it through nursing. I figured as much but its always nice to hear it from the doc.
The fever is all gone and my little Monkey is back to wreaking havoc all over the house. Her ever broke around 9pm last night. She slept fitfully but I think that was simply because she slept most of yesterday. My milk supply is going bonkers from all the nursing she did yesterday. I came out of the bedroom this morning and DH was like, "OMG, they're HUGE!" I'm so glad that was quick. In the past her fevers have lasted a few days. I guess her body is well practiced and can kick them in
Now to continue with the antibiotics She hates them. I even had them flavor them with grape because she does OK with the Tylenol. She just spits most of it out. I have to be tricky. Oh, and I'm giving her tons of yogurt to keep the good buggies growing
