ear infection here!!! UGH

Well.. I had taken ds to the peds yesterday but they could only get a nurse to look at him, and they told me yesterday that he had allergies. We put in a horrible night, and he would cough so hard he would puke. He wanted nothing to do with food, all he wanted to do was nurse. Which was fine with me!! Well after he threw up three times in the wee hours this morning I told DH that something wasnt right. I had called his doc first thing this morning and they could squeeze us in at 445!! SO we got in and sure enough he has an ear infection. His first one!! Poor kid!! Im curious though how this amoxicillin will be on his little body. I know as an adult anytime im on anti biotics i make sure to eat some yogurt. What do you do for babies??? I know there is that YO-baby stuff... but can he eat this???

I think he'll get the probiotics through your milk if you take it. You can put breastmilk in his ear, too. Garlic works really well for ear infections, too (it's antibacterial). I used some garlic oil drops with mullein from the health food store, and the ear infection was gone in a few days, but even if you eat it, he'll get it through your milk. Ear infections are commen with allergies, so be sure to avoid what he's allergic too.

Good luck, mama, I hope it gets better quick.

you can go to your local natural foods and supplements store and pick up some probiotics for babies. That will help boost up the lost good bacteria in your ds.
