My little girl Reagan was born 9/27/09, she was healthy and happy. In October she got stuffed up and congested, the doctor said it was just a cold and it went away in about 10 days. In November the same thing happened she got a cold according to the doctor and it went away in about two weeks. A week before Christmas she got sick again, but this time she had green mucus coming out of her nose, so I took her to the doctor again, this time they said it was a sinus infection, you nasal drops, and a vaporizer she should get better in a week. The next week I noticed she wasn't better and her congestion wasn't better ( the green mucus was gone however) so I took her back to the doctor this time I was told she had a upper respiratory infection but she was too little for antibiotics to give it a week and she should get better. The third week she stopped taking her bottles, was very lethargic, and still congested so back to the doctor we went, this time she had an ear infection,and the doctor thought the congestion might be due to the original sinus infection that might not have gone away so finally she was put on antibiotics. After a week of antibiotics her ear infection was gone but not the congestion. So after over a month of congestion the doctor ordered a chest x-ray, it showed some inflammation but her lungs were clear, and looked good. so we made now weekly visit to the doctor so she could listen to her lungs and check her out and maybe come up with an answer to my little girls congestion. It not any sickness because the antibiotics would of took care of it. Her options were acid reflux, and asthma. She doesn't think it is acid reflux because she doesn't spit up alot, and it would of started sooner. She thinks it might be asthma, but a very acute touch of it, but she wants to wait another week, and send us to a specialist before doing anything farther to get a second opinion . I was just wondering if anyone had anything similar with their baby, or any advice. It just really frustrating knowing your baby doesn't feel good, and not knowing what is wrong and not being able to do anything for her.
