<p>What is the doctor saying? This disease is very dangerous to newborn.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't believe the hospital allowed a coughing person in the room. I would file a complain with their infection control.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>One way to protect the newborn is to make sure everyone around is vaccinated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>When my brother had his  baby recently, the hospital vaccinated him and his wife for free and no one who is not vaccinated is allowed around my nephew.</p>

<p>I hope your baby feels better soon.</p>

Having every one around your baby will not protect them.  Since the vaccine only helps reduce the damage from the bacterial toxins and doesn't kill the bacteria, you will be surrounding your baby with asymptomatic people who are more likely to actually have pertussis<span style="font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:12px;line-height:15px;"><i> </i>bacteria spewing from their mouths</span></span>.  I would rather have people coughing and keep a distance then be breeding grounds and not know it.  The original poster has a head start because she knows that there was a coughing person near her baby, if he had had the vaccine (and it worked at all) he might have still been exposing her baby and she wouldn't have a clue.  </p>

<p>I understand that it's a new born and you have to have your say, but there are two ways to look at it.  </p>

Questions about SA and vitamins belong in health and healing; though to be honest, I wouldn't want to give a 15-day old anything other than BM without guidance from a professional.

<p>I don't want to offend suffering parents, but I really need to give my opinion. I strongly believe whooping cough is being misdiagnosed. Foam in bedding and baby cribs is being treated with toxic flame retardants. I strongly believe children are suffering from toxic flame retardants not pertussis. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The flame retardant chemicals are toxic, but they also off gas and form particulates in the air that is much like asbestos. They will clog the mouth, throat and lungs even in adults so obviously infants are highly susceptible. The best thing to do is to remove the child from the room entirely, have him sleep on a bed that is not made from foam and has no absolutely no chemical treatment. The body can kick a lot of it out of the system, the only way to accelerate this is to have be outside breathing fresh air. If your child is sneezing or coughing, he is kicking it out of his system, don't let him wipe it back onto himself. I hope this helps. </p>

<br><br><p>i believe its not being diagnosed at all...drs are too quick to assume children are vaxed and since they assume said vaccine works, the assumption is, it couldn't possibly be WC.  And drs don't think to look for pertussis in adults.......And it goes the other way around, too...a non vaccinated child might be  poked and prodded much more than a vaccinated child, needless testing, invasive lab draws, etc etc....</p>

Apologies if there is a thread already on this but I have a severe case of baby brain and are sleep deprived...<br><br>
I need info on dosing a 15 day old newborn (wish I was saying a something-month-old) <img alt="greensad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> We very unfortunately suspect early stages of pertussis (catarrhal stage)... Partner of the girl next to me in the hospital room had it and he was coughing everywhere! <img alt="angry.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/angry.gif"> I am so pissed beyond belief.<br><br>
I am BF'ing and I'm not sure how much to give myself or the babe..... Is it only SA or do I need Vit A and D and anything else? Any herbs?<br><br>
Advice would be very, very appreciated. I read somewhere it was 375mg/kg of body weight (think it was on beyond vaccination) but not sure if the info was correct.<br><br>
TIA!</div>

<p>Please read the link upthread - it is very through. Do not be concerned with side effects - the worst would be loose stools. Hope your baby improves quickly!</p>
