So originally baby got pinkeye on Sunday, 7/10. Luckily, we got an antibiotic eyedrops. He only had one day away from daycare, and it cleared up.
Then the next week, he got sent home from daycare on Tuesday, 7/19. My husband took him to the pediatrician, and he has a ear infection. The pediatrician said that sometimes an ear infection can happen after pinkeye. He has to be on the medication Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium for 10 days. There was an aftereffect from the medicine of vomiting and diarrhea on Wednesday. We thought he would be okay to take back to daycare on Friday, 7/22, but he got sent home for diarrhea and fussiness. Luckily, he has not vomited since Wednesday. But he still has the diarrhea this morning. Anyone have any suggestions? I called the pediatrician on Friday to see if we could stop the medication for the ear infection, in hope that baby's diarrhea would clear up, but they told us that we still have to have baby take the medication.
Does anyone have any suggestions? He has been on Pedialyte. I am trying yogurt. I saw that they was a product called Organic B.R.A.T. feel better drink--do this help? He has to be 24 hours free of diarrhea before he can return to daycare. He is not quite on finger foods yet, and he mainly feed him whole milk, Similac Advanced formula, and baby food.
