Hope your LO gets better soon! Those antibiotics for ear infections are not fun. DD is in sposies at daycare so that the DCP doesn't have to rinse out diarhea CDs.
I was going to say ear infection as ds is 11 months and he had a stuffy and runny nose for a week or two then he started getting really fussy and started a fever that wouldn't go away....found out he had an ear infection from all the sinus drainage. he got amoxicilian and ear drops...he's almost done with it all. and he's much better now. And actually he was feeling fine other than the stuffy nose...and when he would lay down.

Re: sick baby... need some advice
