She was having slightly cough ytd then suddenly have high fever during the night but she still wake up for milk . 2 am & 4 am she drink 150ml . At 7 am when she wake up she only drink 100ml & next feed also 100ml . We bring her to her doctor afterwards . he put the med into her buttock then after that she reach home she drink again , sleep & awake , fever gone but next feed only drink 50ml till now she still dont't want to drink & just fall asleep . I am very scared that she will be dehydrated & also can i feed her medicine without milk ? She is drinking too less already , she have got 2 semi-wet diapers since she come home from clinic , she poo too.. How ?!! Help please thanks !
From 7 am till now less than 500ml .. only around 400ml ! When we try to cheer her up , her body will be weak , when she fuss we give her milk but she was rejecting all the way & in the end , we just walk her around & she fall asleep ..
Is it okay to just let her dirnk her medicine ? i am really worried because she from 4+ drink 50ml till now only What do i need make sure so i know she is okay ? ...she is 5 month old
if milk intake drops by more than half then you have to bring her to the dr's again.5-6 wet diapers a day is a good gauge if your baby is drinking enuf.
Okay .. her diapers only 2-3 like this i try to observe if she wake up later or is it fine to wake her up for milk ? she have not drink her medicine ..ANyway we will give her sips of water she will drink but comes to milk she just reject ..
Is her throat sore?If it is yes she will reject milk cause its warm/hot.Try give her some water with rock sugar if you feel or she looks dehydrated.I dont usually practice sugar with my kids but when they are sick and not drinking milk i give them this to make sure they are still consuming liquids.
When you brought her to the doctor, what was the diagnosis?
It's good that she can accept water.
Alternatively you can get electrolyte solution from the doctor to feed her. Electrolyte solution is like H2O for babies. It replenishes fluids, glucose and has small amts of sodium necessary for bodily functions.
Hi, my son had fever last mon n ever since he had rejected milk.. Now he has no more fever but he doesnt want to drink milk at all.. Is it ok? He is 30mths now.. Or should i change fm?
If it's throat infection it's painful for them to drink warm stuff so you gotta give them cooler milk. For the fever it's due to the infection so you have to give the medication n it shld come down with medication n may spike up again when drug wears off but it shld b a coming down trend..
Alrights , thanks all mummies , was very worried bout her ytd , now at least she drink her milk but i decrease her milk supply because she doesn't have much appetite Nowadays alot ppl sick , hub me & sister in law all sick already , takecare all !
