I took my baby to the ER last night. He has had a cough for a month, I've taken him to the doc 3x for it. They finally did a chest x-ray last night and it was fine. They said he has an upper respiratory infection. He's been sick for month I repeat! He's got a runny nose, cough, and puking. I can't keep fluids down him. He is hungry and tries to eat and then pukes. I have to feed him 1/2-1 oz every 20 min. He slept yesterday from 7pm-11am and his diaper was barely wet at 11am, no wet diaper since. He's been asleep all day, I am waking him to feed him. How can I get them to help me. I feel so bad for him. I don't want him to become dehydrated. Should I just keep following docs orders and wait it out?

Call your ped in the morning. Let them know about the decrease in wet diapers and the continuing of throwing up. They really should see your child again.
