everytime she have this infections, the pedia will prescribed anti-biotic and it works after couple of days.
Stopping breastfeeding is not the reason for food allergies.
Many children get frequent viral infections, and it's not necessarily a bacterial infection.
Food allergies are not common.
You may consider getting a second opinion about these frequent infections, many physicians are less eager to prescribe antibiotics, and may be willing to watch the child for worsening. It takes more work, but is better for the child.
My 10 yr. old had the same problem from about 3 months old on, and she still gets it. In fact she is just getting over bronchitis. I've taken her to 5 or 6 different Dr's. andguess what...they all had different answers. My house is the same, but I do smoke...NOT AROUND my 2 children, but outside with a shirt over the shirt I'm wearing(yes, even in the summer), they say that keeps the smoke from getting on my children and thier clothes. Not sure if it works but they haven't been sick as much since I started doing that.
Enoch Choi is very right...you need to get a second opinion, or 3 for that matter. I will say this much...if she keeps getting the bronchitis and you see a Dr. that won't give any anti biotics; go to one that will. My baby got put in the hospital because a Dr. told me that they don't give anti biotics for bronchitis anymore. Them babies do need anti biotics, thier amune system isn't strong enough yet to fight these infections.
I'm sorry if I'm not much help but I have been there and it is very frustrating.
Good Luck, I hope you find the answers you need soon, I'm still searching and she's 10.
thanks! i'll bring her to other pedia and see what's up with her.
thanks and i'll do what you said.
let us know what the other pedia says....
As a person who has had bronchitis since 3 months old,and m now 62, use steam vapors, either hot or cold will help loosen the bronchial phlegm and keep the baby coughing. You do not want to supress the cough as it needs to get out of the lungs or it turns to pneumonia. My dr. never prescribed anything for the bronchitis as it is not bacterial but viral in nature.
Just be prepared, it doesn't go away. I still get it twice a year.But other than that I'm very healthy and strong.
