Babies Do Not Want To Suckle And Do Not Urinate During Fever After Immunization?
my baby is 3 months old and less than 8 days old, born with 3.0 kg of BB and now her BB is 5.6. For the past 5 days my baby refused to be breastfed, and on November 20 he was immunized, and tomorrow he had a slight fever after immunization. Is that why he refuses to be breastfed? And from the night before he slept until this morning he didn’t pee at all? Why is my baby, what should I do? R nPlease answer? R nThank you
Hello Yuens, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously, I would like to confirm several things in advance:
Is the fever that occurred the day after the immunization still ongoing until now? Does your baby refuse to be breastfed since the baby has a fever or only now? Post-immunization fever is usually only a mild fever and only lasts 1-2 days after immunization. If your baby still has a fever until now, then you need to think about other possible causes of fever, such as infections, autoimmune diseases, reactions to medications, or other illnesses. If your baby still has a fever until now, you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination.
Babies who have a fever also sometimes become more lazy to drink. But if at this time your baby is not feverish and still lazy to drink, it is necessary to think of other causes, for example the baby is teething, there is thrush in the baby's mouth, the baby is sick, there is fungus in the baby's mouth, breast milk does not come out smoothly, etc. If your baby refuses to suckle, you should not let your baby not drink milk. You should still offer breast milk directly or use other methods, such as giving breast milk through bottles or cup feeders. Babies should still get intake of milk or formula milk because both are food sources and the main source of fluid for babies.
Sometimes babies who have slept all night (no longer waking up to suckle) can not pee at night, but when the baby wakes up, the baby will pee as usual. You should consider your baby's urine again. If your baby is still not urinating too when your baby is awake, baby urine looks very thick and few in number, there are signs of dehydration in the baby (the mouth looks dry, no tears come out when crying, the baby looks weak and sleeps on, the crown feels sunken, the eyes look sunken, the baby continues not to drink in any way), you MUST immediately bring your baby to the hospital. Meanwhile, you should continue to try and try to provide breast milk or formula intake for your baby.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
