We got into see a doctor today and I was told DS has a bit of an ear infection. He prescribed some amoxicillin.
Yay, or Nay?
I refuse antibiotics myself because we're nursing and I don't want to expose him to something he doesn't need.
I thought breastfed babies got few ear infections?
my son is breastfed and has had 3 ear infections. i, too, am reluctant to do the abx route, but in your case, it sounds like your little guy is pretty sick. i'm all for taking a wait-and-see approach, but your little guy seems pretty miserable. if i were in your case, i'd probably give him the abx.
that's just my opinion...for what it's worth.
good luck! i hope your boy feels better soon.

I gave him a dose, and some motrin and he's feeling tons better. Actually playing and smiling, something I've missed seeing.
Noah was up for 3 hours during the night, 1a,-4am. He would lay his head down for a minute, then tense up and cry. Repeat for 3 hours. Nothing I did helped. Nursing, diaper change, snuggling, rocking, nothing helped.
I'm not the CIO type, but I leave him to cry for a few minutes while I regrouped in the living room, then went back at it.
Is this a reaction to the abx He's never been like this, never.
Eesh! Did you find out what it was? Did he get better? I'm facing the same problem, debating amoxicillin for my LO for an ear infection. :/ She's never been on anything and I HATE to start now, but I also hate for it to get out of control.
