My LO was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis at 4 days old. He was hospitalized for 3 weeks. During that time his vitals had to be checked at least every 2 hrs, he had antibiotics every 4hr. And a constant flow of nurses checking his IV and changing it spots every 48hrs.
After the 3 weeks, we commuted home treatment for 6 weeks. Thankfully he is cured.
The concern now is that he was unable to sleep on his back. He could only sleep on me. We were told this was because on the fact he was constantly touched wild being hospitalized.
He has trouble sleeping, he usually cries a lot. He also has lots of gas which I try to help him with. He can sometime sleep on his back, only after passing out on me and sleeping next to me.
Anyone had the same situation, any idea on ow to make him a big more independent? He is now 3 months old.
