My son has had an ear infection for five days now. They had him on Amoxicillen but just switched him to Augmenten which is supposed to knock it out. What I want to know is why is it that he had an ear infection is October, then another in November when he had pneumonia, and now has another but both ears? What can I do to prevent this?
I've adjusted his bed so that he sleeps at a slant, I've gotten the saline nasal spray so that the congestion he has is a little but under control, I've also cut out milk because I was allergic to it when I was younger and I give him rice milk or soy instead. I've gotten him probiotics so that he can get some of his good bacteria back that the other antibiotics killed, I've friggin sanitized EVERYTHING. He hasn't had a binky since he was 2 months old and I've breastfed him and still do so at night time when I'm not in school or working. (He's 17 months and in the process of weaning)
The only change is that he started Daycare in October, but I didn't think you could like, catch an ear infection or pneumonia.
Any thoughts? Every little bit counts. If nothing else some feedback telling me I've done all I can is enough...I just need to know.
