I took my 10 month old to the pedi today. It was suppose to be a wellness check up but she ended up getting a fever last night. Anyways, the doc said it was her throat and that from what I told him he thinks its this bug that is going around and that her fever will probably get higher in the next day or two and then she will develop a cough that usually lasts about 2 weeks... He perscribed antibiotics (which I didn't like cuz she has been on them since she was born it seems like - she has been sick several times). he told me to get her sprite and gatoraid and not to give her any formula. She is on table food but that still seems really wierd to me cuz all I've ever heard is that they NEED formula until they are at least 12 months old.... has anyone ever been told not to give their baby formula?Answer Question

They do need it, but in this case I see why he is saying no. She is sick and may get a bit worse and all that will do is make her feel worse and upset her stomach more. She can have it once she is better again.
