I had my baby on Tuesday she is 4 days old today. While I was in the hospital recovering I came down with a super horrible sore throat. I told the nurses my doctor and basically no one was concerned and they just kept giving me cough drops and told me the air was dry there.
Now today is Saturday and my throat hurts just as much as it did before, I have a deep mucus cough and sinus drainage. So I’m freaking out. I decided to go to urgent care and get checked out and they said the sinus drainage is what’s causing the sore throat and the cough but it could be bronchitis. And the doctor prescribed me a Z pack.
My concern is my 4 day old baby. She’s showing no signs of being sick. But iv already called her pediatrician and my OB and both basically said the same thing is make sure I’m washing my hands and if she gets sick then take her in.
Safe to say I’m freaking out. Because I wasn’t being overly cautious with her till now. Went on google (I know ) and bronchitis can turn into RSV. Ugh.
She is being breastfeed and my doctor told me to keep doing that. But other than that there’s nothing I can do. Im also wearing a mask around her, yay.
I guess I wanted to hear DONT worry she’ll be fine. Lol but no one said that. So now I’m sitting here waiting for her to get sick and did I mention I’m freaking out?!
