Advice on baby off colour
O had his second imms on wed, he was a bit off on wed afternoon but we gave him 2.5ml of calpol late afternoon and he seemed better. He was a bit grumpy on Thursday then on Thursday night he had a terrible nappy (cut him from his vest situ!) which I know was due to the imms.
By Friday he had a really stuffy nose and was taking less of his feeds, between 3-4oz as opposed to 5oz which I think was perhaps due to his nose being blocked and struggling to breath, he was also being sick (more than normal!) Friday night he was really unsettled, mainly as he kept waking up because his nose was so blocked, he was then taking a good 5oz bottle but then more like 3or 4 on the next one and so on.
By Saturday he was really tired and kept falling asleep during feeds, he then only took 3oz on two feeds in a row, he was crying really hard, had a rash on his tummy and back so we ended up at the hospital to get him seen. The doctor told us he thinks it was all a bad reaction to his rotovirus imms and to give calpol which we did on Saturday night.
His rash seems better by today but his nose is so so stuffy. We're using saline inhailor spray and I'm taking him in the bathroom when I'm in the shower to try and help him. Do I give him calpol or not? He's 14weeks so I know he's 'allowed' it but I don't want to just give him calpol just like water. He keeps falling asleep and waking up crying but im not sure if it's frustration from not getting a good sleep or is he not well. I have a mega sore throat today so think it's the start of a cold and I hate to think he's hurting.
Any advice appreciated.
