UPDATE: ugh. So the pedi drew a CBC and said his WBCs were high, indicating a vital infection of some sort. She "thinks" it's GI and she "thinks" the protein and fat in my milk are bothering his gut so that's why he's refusing. Right. Her advice was to stop bfing for 24 hours and get at least 20oz of pedialyte down him. I told her how he refuses bottle, syringe, cup, spoon, and finger, but she seems to think I can force 20oz of pedialyte down him. She didn't think it was serious enough to warrant a tube, despite the fact that he's peed once in 11 hours and is sleeping all the time. What do I do? That's bad advice, right? Should I just take him to the ER?
UPDATE 2: disappointed again. ER doc swabbed him for strep and is going to do a U/A (both still pending). She literally laughed in my face when I mentioned an NG tube. She said she would never put a tube down a baby who has "no signs" of dehydration. Apparently, in her book, a 2-month old only needs 3 wet diapers a day and 2 (he's up to 2 now) is "close enough." As far as him nursing only twice since 4am (for less than 10 minutes each time) she said is just him being "more effective." At least the pedi gave me something to do (even if it was bad advice). This doc is just going to send us home. Why will no one take this seriously!?
