Dd (10 mo) has been sick for a long time now. It started as just an ear infection which I tried to treat naturally and then got a sinus infection and diarrhea and just keeps getting sicker. The doctor yesterday said her ear looks awful-one of the worst she has seen in a while and that given everything going on she is postive she has a bacterial infection. We told her how we feel about abx and she actually listened and was nice, but told us that she is concerned that the infection is going through her system.
I know that doctors will prescribe abx at the drop of a hat and I don't always listen to ours but, dd has been miserable for 3 weeks now. I tried homeopathy and letting her fight it off, but it is just getting worse. So ideally I would have taken her to a homeopath as soon as she started getting worse, but I am new at this and did not think it would take the turn it has. Am I a bad mom for just giving abx this time, learning from the mistake, and next time get a hold on things much earlier?
I hate to see my dd so sick and miserable and next time I will take her to a homeopath/naturopath much earlier, I just hate to do abx. I started the first dose of abx and probiotics as I just want her better and it scares me what the doctor said about the infection traveling throughout her body.
