So Simon will not eat, pretty much at all. He's drinking ok and will bf. He had a fever and is very whiney and some diarrhea and a diaper rash so we went to the dr's yesterday. Turns out he (apparently) has a double ear infection. Whatever, I'll explain later why I doubt this. He's prescribed antibiotics, which he would NOT take no matter what I'd so since they tasted soooo bitter! I diluted it in an entire bottle and you could still taste it.
So they give us a different antibiotic, that tastes ok, just sweet. But now he's skeptical of anything I give him since he's expecting that nasty a$$ stuff from yesterday. However, he no longer has a temp. but still wont really eat. Otherwise he's acting fairly normal.
Now for why I dont know for sure if the doctor is right about the ear infection: she looked while he was screaming his head off and totally purple/red faced.. she said, oh yea his ear drum is just bulging and red. BUT when he was sick awhile back a nurse practitioner said that they always look that way if they are screaming their heads off.
BUT i have no other reason for him not eating. He's not coughing/sneezing. No throwing up or anything. Liquids fo in fine. I've given him advil incase it's his teeth, but that doesnt really change the eating. The diaper rash is almost gone and so is the diarrhea, but he hasnt really eaten much to poop out.
