Braedyn is sick

Monday, April 30, 2007 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm 15 comments

Our poor little boy is currently going through his first bout of diahorrea, a full-blown case of food poisoning. Poor thing and poor us. It has been 4 days already with no signs of it easing.

The basic routine is this; purge, change of nappy (with screams and all), peace and quiet, then purge, so on and so forth with the gap between each cycle ranging from an hour to 2 hours.

On the 2nd night from midnight to 6am, we changed his nappy 3 times. That day, we changed a total of 9 times. We wiped his poor bum until it became all sore which meant we ended up using the shower rose to wash him. The warm water made his sore bum even more tender…Ouch! So now the routine is; purge, nappy change – with water wash and lots of cream on the affected areas, peace and quiet.

Dr gave him his fever medication, some probiotic bacteria for his tummy and some salts to dissolve in water to drink. The salts are meant to make his intestines absorb more water but Braedyn would not take his salt drink. One sip, a quick shake of the head and a shove and the cup would end up on daddy’s lap. Daddy would take a sip, turn his head around (so that Braedyn can’t see), make a face and stick out his tongue and the cup would end up on my lap. A real funny tasting drink.

We’re off to see Dr again tonight because the fever comes and goes while the diahorrea hasn’t improved one bit. Want to seek his opinion before he goes on his break the next 2 days.

    Have you tried giving him boiled rice water? It’s an old wives’ trick. It helped ease the diarrhea..worked on Belle.
    Thanks, will try that. MIL doesn’t know about Brae being sick yet so haven’t heard any old wives’ tricks from her yet.

    oh dear…that sounds horrible…and poor braedyn and mommy and daddy…’s very heartsick to see them suffer like that huh!

    Yes it is and I don’t even know if he is experiencing stomach cramps.

    Poor Brae…for a small kid, that is really awful. I should now, mine has reached 7 days and I’m still having diarrhea. Hope he recovers soon 🙂

    Hope he’ll get well soon.

    It’s really pitiful to see them purging like that. I’m sure he’ll loose lots of weight after this.

    He’s already lost 0.5kg 😦

    Oh dear! Darrius went through that oedeal for almost 2 weeks when we were in LV last year… imagine the long hours we have to travel and he was stuck in his car seat… so changing diaper is a real chore! His butt was sooo sore that when I tried washing him he screamed in pain. He was so phobia of changing diapers!

    Luckily he drank the salt water the paed prescibed and after 2 days, the diarrhea was gone for good but constipation followed!

    Oh dear me.. I hope Brae is getting better already..

  • 13. mumsgather  |  Friday, May 4, 2007 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm

    Oh No. Poor baby and poor mommy and daddy. I hope he’s recovered by now.

    Hope he’s better already… mabe you guys can let him use the cloth nappy for the time being? More airy for sore bum-bums…

    The best protection/ remedy for nappy rash is actually Vaseline. Works better than any nappy cream. Alternatively i find Palmers cocoa butter nappy cream to be quite good too. But Vaseline is still the better and cheap too.

    Of course, the really best benefit is to air the bottom but that may not be feasible for a long time if the bb is not toilet trained yet.
