Update on baby SN's condition

First of all I would like to thank all of you for the prayer of baby SN's health and pieces of advices to counter the situation that I faced when baby SN was sick. I'm sorry for not being able to answer each and every comments (*refer: Baby SN dah semakin susut nilai.* ) personally right now as I am quiet busy for the moment. However, I want you to know that I really appreciate your doa doa for baby SN and the tips given.

Last night, my MIL has made a call from Malaysia as she was worried over baby SN's condition after reading that entry
(*refer: Baby SN dah semakin susut nilai.* ). She said that looking at the latest picture of baby SN has shed her tears as it was obvious that baby SN has lose some weight due to the sickness. Poor umi, she must be really worried of her grandson's condition. Not to worry anymore....Alhamdulillah, sengihnampakgigi after that critical 4 days of suffering for stomach flu, baby SN is getting healthier and better.

The Pediatrician of Kinoshita Clinic informed us that there were infections inside his stomach. He scanned baby SN's stomach and we was told that there were massive amount of stool trapped inside it. Thus, Dr has insert 10ml fluid medication inside his bottom to help on the process of forcing out all those stool inside his stomach.

When I searched about this, I found out that some similar symptoms faced by baby SN lead to a kind of illness known as Stomach Flu. Here's some info about it to share with you from babycenter regarding to this illness.

What is stomach flu?

Stomach flu, or gastroenteritis, is an inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract. The most common culprit is one of a number of other viruses and gastroenteritis. If your baby has gastroenteritis, he/she may have diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, chills, and achiness. *semua symptom2 ni memang ada pada baby SN 4 hari tu huhuhu*.

How did my baby get stomach flu?

(i) Contaminated food

Your baby may have eaten something contaminated with the virus or shared a cup or utensils with someone who has the virus. If bacteria or a parasite is to blame, your child may have ingested contaminated food or drinking water. --> *mungkin sebab I buat stok baby food untuk seminggu, bila dah hari khamis..makanan tu dah tak elok walaupun I simpan dalam freezer*

(ii) Infection from hand to mouth
Another way your baby may have picked up the illness is by coming in contact with infected fecal matter and then putting her hands in her mouth. This happens a lot, especially in daycare situations. -->
*mungkin sebab minggu lepas sensei dia bawak baby SN main pasir, agaknya dia masuk tangan dalam mulut masa main pasir tu*.

When should I call the doctor?

  • if your baby has been vomiting for more than two days or has blood in her stool, or you think she's excessively fussy.
  • if your baby has fever (baby less than 3 months : 38oC, baby between 3-6 months : 38.3oC, baby 6 months or older: 39.44oC.)
  • decreased urination (more than six hours without a wet diaper)
  • excessive sleepiness or fussiness
  • a sunken soft spot
  • wrinkled skin
  • sunken eyes
  • extreme thirst
  • dry lips
  • crying without tears
  • cool, discolored hands and feet
When to Worry? around

  • If the vomiting persists for more than twenty-four hours, especially if it remains intense.
  • If the tiniest amount of fluid makes he vomit.
  • If there are signs of dehydration --> he'll appear tired and pale. His eyes will barely stay open, and he'll produce very little urine. You should go to the hospital so he can receive intravenous (IV) fluids.
When Not to Worry?

  • If he remains active.
  • If the vomiting recurs once or twice after subsiding for a day or two. This may indicate that you have been too quick to reintroduce foods that are a little tough on the tummy, despite of his encouraging cravings.*ni daddy lah, suka suki je suap baby SN makan & minum macam2 hohoho*

*nak suap sendiri, tak padan kecik*
What To Do?

  • Give him the tiniest amount of liquid he will tolerate without vomiting, but give it almost continuously until the vomiting has settled.
  • You can give any soft drink (cola, ginger ale, sports drink) on older child diluted by half with water and served at room temperature.
  • For baby, you can use small quantities of breast milk or formula diluted with twice as much water. If he/she vomits more than a couple of times, switch her to clear fluids, just, as you would an older child.
  • Give only fluid until at least six hours after the vomiting ends. You can then start reintroducing very bland solid foods, such as crackers or dry cereal.
What Not To Do?

  • Don't use plain water. You need to replace minerals, salts, and sugars, along with the water.
  • Don't reintroduce solid foods too quickly.
  • Don't give cow's milk or full-strength formula until the vomiting has subsided.
  • Don't use anti-vomiting suppositories. They're inefficient and potentially dangerous.
How can I help protect my baby against gastroenteritis?
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after every diaper change and bathroom visit and before preparing or eating food.
  • It's also a good idea to wash your baby's hands often throughout the day.

*mommy loves u so much, jgn wat mommy risau lagi huhu*

Some of my friends were saying that this symptoms is also lead to a situ
ation known as "beralih bulan" and that this symptoms occurred to indicate that he will be teething soon. Whatever it is, I'm hoping the best for my little prince. As for this week, I am not sending baby SN to his nursery but he will be taken care by Kak Azma until this Friday. I'm glad sengihnampakgigi that baby SN has recover from the illness and has become active again though he still suffer mild diarrhea occasionally.
