By 3 months old my baby was sleeping 10-12 hours at night.At 3 1/2 months he got what I thought was a cold, turned out to be bronchilitis and an ear inf. He had 1 breathing treatment and whet on antibiotics for 10 days. After antibiotics he started running a low grade fever (99.5-100.9) and still coughing and wheezing. Took back to dr, ear inf fine, but bronchilitis was worse. A nurse brought a breathing machine to our house and we did 3 breathing treatments a day for a week. During this time his temp would get over 100.1 (barely) took him back and he had a double ear inf. Went on different antibiotic, few days later even worse, so had 2 shots of antibiotics for ear inf. Last week we took him to an ENT Specialist. I think his ear infections are better, but he still sas a low grade fever. The highest its been today is 100.6. He has been running a low grade fever for over a month now. Is it ok for him to have had a fever for this long?
He is now 5 months old and hasnt slept through the night since he started feeling bad 8 weeks ago. Thanks for any help/advice.
