Babies Sickness

So many babies go through some days when they are not well. It’s an inevitable part of children.  Many types of illnesses in babies are not serious, but parents should be ready and prepared to help treat the illnesses.

Depending on the situation, many babies become weak during those times especially if she/she refuses breast milk, formula or water. You should know when to call a doctor.

Your baby might not be feeling well for a few hours or could refuse feedings. In addition to not eating, there are other dehydration symptoms you should look for, such as:

  • A lack of consistent wet diapers.  If you suspect your child is dehydrated, keep track of all of his wet diapers.
  • No tears when he cries.  A lack of tears could be considered as a sign of dehydration.
  • Dry mouth.

Your child may have other symptoms beyond dehydration.  Call your doctor if you notice:

  • Your child is acting weak and has a limp body.
  • An abnormally weak cry.
  • An excessive number of bowel movements.
