My Baby is Suffering From Fever with Cough and Vomit

by Shahid
(India)

My Baby is 9 Months old and she is very weak her head size is bigger in compare with her body. In the past she suffered from fever but cured by the grace of Almighty Allah.


But from last 3 days she is suffering from fever again this time too she got cured but today she got fever again with a cough and she vomit twice today and day before. I'm very much worried what I do next. I feel scared giving too much medicine needlessly. Please suggest what I should do.

Medicines Given:
ibugesic plus
augpen hs suspension
mucolite sr

It a great pleasure for having any suggestions.

Thanks

Watch for Dehydration, See the Doctor
by: Heather ;-)

Shahid,

A sick baby can be a very scary thing. I'm not a doctor, so let me first recommend that you take her to a clinic or hospital for an examination. They will be able to provide more precise instructions and keep an eye on her.

First: Watch for Dehydration

Dehydration is very serious for babies, it's when your baby looses too much water (through vomiting or diarrhea). Monitor the signs of dehydration and how to fight against it. (More fluids!)

Second: Stop the Vomiting

It will be hard to keep her hydrated if she can't keep anything down. Start by giving her a teaspoon or two of breastmilk or formula. Wait 30 minutes to an hour and see if she keeps it down. If so, give her a few teaspoons again, wait, and watch...eventually giving her more and more. Here are the specifics on how to use this step-up approach to fighting infant vomiting.

Third: Monitor the Fever

Fevers are not necessarily bad for your baby. It's her natural immune system "going to war" so to speak. That said, a high fever can backfire on a body, so you'll have to help her keep a good balance.

Shahid, I prayed for your baby this morning, I hope that she can make a full recovery soon. Please feel free to post more questions, or keep us posted.

Blessings,
Heather

So, this site also provide such platform to moms where a lot of stuff available for the babies. Infect, some moms come to share their issues related to baby here and other moms say their experience about it which help to get rid of that issue. any how, I want best big bang but i think this one is the best effort for the moms.
