My daughter went for her four month shots on Monday (she is actually 4.5 months). She got two shots and the oral. She was perfectly fine when she went in. Monday afternoon she was a little fussy, but nothing too bad. Monday night she was a little stuffy. Her symptoms progressed the past couple of days. Today she woke up with her eye swollen shut (it had been leaking earlier, but not green like this). I keep taking a warm cloth and holding it and going over it, but it hasn't cleared up yet. She is very congested and has difficulty nursing (I don't think it is loss of appetite though). She is coughing a decent amount as well. We had her sleep in her swing the last two nights and have been keeping her upright through the day. I have given her warm baths and used the snot sucker a lot (though she hates it). I called the dr and they said I could bring her in, but there is not really anything else they can do. She is EBF and I try to eat very healthy so I don't know how she got sick:(. Just wondering if anyone has any other suggestions. I hate that she feels so bad.
