My daughter is only 12 weeks old and she was running fever the other day and we took her to the er to find out that she had a urinary trackt infection. They addmitted her to the hospital and we were there for 3 days. She was put on an IV for fluids and antibioics. The doctor said that the infection could have spread to her whole body inculding her brain if it wasnt treated because newborns dont have a strong immune syster to keep the infection from spreading. They had to keep us for 48 hrs to see what kind of backteria it was and if it got in her blood stream. I was in shock, I had no idea that she even had one but I was in even more shock how seriouse it was for a newborn. Im so glad that I check on my babys throughout the nights. I asked the doctor how she got it and he said from her stool and said theres really no way to prevent it even if I wipe front to back. Has anyone experianced this with there newborn?Answer Question
