My daughter hasnt been eating normal since late yesterday evening. She will eat 2-3 oz every 5 or so hours. Totally not her!! I thought maybe its cause we were so busy yesterday with family and that shes tired or that her growth spurt has ended. I was planning on taking her to her doctors this morning just incase she was sick but I got a phone call this morning at 4am from my Ma saying my grandpa past away. He wasnt going to be embombed (sp?) so we just got back from his grave side service. I just tried to call her doctor but they just had closed!!! I just used the bulb on her nose and her bugers are green. I asked my sister about that and her childs doc told her when babies bugers are green that it could mean infection. Shes caughing just a little and sneezing maybe twice an hour. Her nose isnt running tho. Oh I also checked her temp, its was 98.5 so thats in the normal range. She has an appointment on the 5th but Im definantly not waiting to then.

What I need advice on is should I take her to the .E.R or wait till 8am?? Right now its 5pm.

Joey just got throught feeding her 5-6 oz and its been 4 hours since her last feeding. She usually eats 3-4oz every 2-3 hours.

**** update!!

I took her to the er. We didnt even have to wait long. Something inside of me made me feel like i should. She has an ear infection. Sad my poor little girl

i'm extremely laid back about things so i would just wait until morning and see how she is. from the sounds of things it doesn't really sound like anything is wrong, she's just eating differently (?), i didn't see a reason to rush her to the .e.r.

but you need to do whatever you feel comfortable with.

i'm really sorry about your grandfather. Sad
