Ear infection in my 3 month old!! :( :( :(
My 2 year old is teething, she is cutting all 4 back molars, and I took her to playtown and she brought home a cold. that was 2 weeks ago. My 3 month old just started teething a couple weeks ago and she caught the cold.
She's had this high fever (100.9 was the highest, yesterday) and scary cough for 3 days so I took her to the doctor, whom found that she has an ear infection! So he immediately prescribed antibiotics and I asked him what his opinion is on the fact that studies show antibiotics clear up an ear infection only three days sooner than no antibiotics and he told me (stuttering and red as he did so lol) that is a valid point and we will wait until Friday if I choose. Also, I told him she is breastfed and he just blinked like why are you tellin me this?
My question to you BFn mamas is; has your baby gotten an ear infection, and if so did you do antibiotics or no? Why or why not and did it work as you had hoped?
