I wanted to get some opinions re: antibiotics. My ever so sweet DH, drives me crazy in that the minute he hears an opinion from an outside source, even if I've given the same opinion earlier, he will get so hung up on the outside source's opinion, but that's for another post
So MJD is now on his 4th ear infection and we've dealt with 2 bouts of strep, so we are looking at almost 6 different times on antibiotics in 16 months. DH was on a work trip with a physician and it must have come up that MJD was back on antibiotics and the doc said that he tries to avoid putting his own kids on antibiotics because they will eventually become immune to them, etc. Well now DH is on a high horse about it and literally yesterday took MJD to the pediatrician because I had a lingering feeling he had an ear infection and he did. So that meant antibiotics, this time Augmentin. DH is hell bent on not completing the full dose, where I'm thinking I want the ear infection gone and a happy/healthy kid.
I totally get where he is coming from, and maybe I haven't done the best job of asking for other options from the pedi, since I know it works to heal him, but seriously what else can you do in a case with an ear infection (I'm assuming tubes may be in our future) or with strep?
I would just love some thoughts/opinions/experiences, thanks!
