I just made an appointment for tonight but...All last week I was out of town and so was my MIL who normally watches my kid. My 10 month old daughter spent her first week in a daycare with 1 other child.
Saturday she threw up twice after eating solid food so my husband decided to stick just to formula.
She didn't throw up again but had a low grade fever all weekend. Acting perfectly normal, happy, laughing, crawling and standing up all over.
Sunday night I gave her some cheerios, she was fine.
Yesterday at lunch I gave her some solids, she was fine.
Last night just before bed she threw up. I only fed solids at lunch.
This morning she's had 2 bottles of formula, one with some cheerios and no issues. But I hear her tummy rumbling and she's still got diarrhea which she has also had since Saturday. Still low grade fever.
Should I give it another day or take her in? Now my husband is feeling stomach sick and me too so I imagine it's just a bug.
Can I feed her water at this age? To keep her hydrated?
Normal feeding schedule:
630am: 6 ounces and half jar food
930am: 6 ounces
1230pm: 6 ounces and half jar food
330pm: 6 ounces
630pm: 6 ounces and half jar
Sometimes she gets a small handful of cheerios at the 930 or 330 feedings.
Shes still sleeping 10-12 hours a night but napping a lot more during the day.
Eta: I'm sicker than her at this point. Lol....I realized is not diarrhea, just "formula poop"when not eating solids. Will try solids again tomorrow. Thanks everyone!
Sorry, I should have included this in my last entry but I'm packing now and just realized.
ALSO, thank you to everyone who did respond on my last entry. I got some fabulous advice and ideas!!! THANK YOU!
Okay so...we're going to Florida for Thanksgiving and I purchased on of those kid tents. Then I read that sunscreen is bad for babies? Gah. We plan to spend at least one full day at the beach and I was hoping that the small kiddie pool, the tent, the umbrella and the sunscreen would keep her cool and hydrated.
Can I have some tips and advice? She's 10 months old currently. I bought Coppertone water babies SPF 50.
ETA: Death in the family so husband and baby aren't coming down to meet me after my company convention. Thanks anyway though!
Mayyyybe I read too much P101, but I always thought food other than formula/BM was for fun until age 1. I planned some time around six months to start letting my kid experiment with pureed foods that we're eating but otherwise haven't thought much about it.
His daycare asked at 3 mos if we wanted them to start giving him rice cereal, to which we said no. Today (four months today) we asked our doctor what he needed and she said he could need rice cereal for iron. But I know his Enfamil has it! I realllly don't want to start shoving my kid full of processed carb mix with a ton of chemicals I can't pronounce (I already feel bad enough that donated breast milk didn't take [we adopted and I did not induce lactation]) if it isn't useful.
There is just SO much competing information on this. You all aren't doctors but any links or help you might be able to give me that really outlines what we need to do vs. what's just old school BS would be awesome.
And in case it's worth noting.. our kid definitely does NOT have any trouble gaining weight or eating. He's massive. (19lb3oz at 4 months.)
Would you be interested in taking a college course on bottle-feeding infants using commercial baby formula?
