She's only 15 months so sge can't tell me exactly what the manner is. She's recovering from a cold and I noticed she wasn't eating much and on closer inspection I noticed some white sored on her tongue. Mum and I thought it was thrush so we took her to the doctors. Doc reckons its a viral infection and a form of cold sore as Ive had them. She can't well though. Gave her yoghurt for breakfast and she cried in pain after one bite. She is slurping those ellas kitchen puree sachets and breastmilk but I'm worried she will starve. Am giving calpol/ibuprofen. Is there anything I can do to help her eat and ease the pain. poor little thing.
Poor baby thats really awful id bring her back to doc again if there is no improvement by fri, but if it is trush u can get dactarin oral gel over the counter... And fresh pineapple also kills it and if she could suck on it cold from the fridge it may help ease the pain too. My little boy had trush and i was breastfeeding and the doc said to put the dactarin on my nipples too jus to kill anything if it was there, but rubbing a little expressed milk wud prob do it think myself... Poor baby i really hope she feels better soon
Hiya- shes ok but am going to the docs tomorrow. She had a bit of porridge for breakfast. No lunch but snacked on blackberries and breadsticks. At tea she was crying with pain. She also dosn't seem as enthusiastic about her food. Normally she follows me into the kitchen begging like a puppy. I am worried but i'm sure the doc will help. Have given painkillers although bonjela seems to hurt her a lot. It's horrid. She still is laughing and enjoyed a trip to the park.
