Ava had a little trouble crying late last nigt, and a little this morning. She seems to be doing better now, since her feeding earlier. Her Daddy has had a bad sore throat for about a week now, and he also has PINK EYE, if you can believe that!! We have been careful not to put her too close to his face, and he ahs been good about washing and sterilizing his hands. So far so clear on the pink eye.
Is there anything I can give her for a sore throat? I am going to call her pedi this morning to see if I can't get an appointment.
Also, has anyone had a baby that has gotten pink eye before? Her Daddy picked if up from her 7 year old sister, who of course picked it up from a little boy at school. =( I have never seen a case so bad before. He has it in BOTH eyes, and his eyes are bloody looking under his eyelids. His eyes are clearing up now, but still really red under his lids. I feel so bad for him. I made him a big pot of chicken soup last night. Only problem we are having now, is that his daughters mother is convinced that her daughter has allergies instead of pink eye because that is what her pedi told her. He prescribed oral antibiotics, hopefully it will cure it. We went to the doctor and she prescribed eye drops with antibiotics for my DF.
It seems like EVERYONE is sick around here. There is no way to shelter our babies from it I guess. It's so nerve racking!!
