  • I'd say that the bladder infections... he might have reflux back into the kidneys... have they looked into that?? Done ultra sounds and a VCUG.
    As far the mouth and neck infection... are they yeast infections? You can get yeast infections because of antibiotics... thrush in his mouth and his neck folds if he tends to be a spitty or messy baby when he drinks
    or he might have had a virus that caused mouth sores...

  • Are you keeping your home clean? Do you have a dog that licks the baby? other kids that touch the baby? These things and many more could be why your poor little one is so sick. I hope you figure out whats causing it.
