I have a 9 month old son whom I dropped by accident on Friday night because he is so squirmy and strong, well we brought him to the ER and they found a buckle fracture in his lower left leg and put it in a splint. Well since Saturday we have been giving him 1 tsp of ibuprofen that the doctor prescribed him from the er for the pain. Well he has been non stop fussy and screaming not crying at the top of his lungs for hours on end. I do feed him before and after giving him the medicine but I was wondering if it may be upsetting his stomach or what. I am at a loss because I don't know what could be wrong with him. He does have an appt with an orthopedic doctor tomorrow morning. Any suggestions as to what I can do to comfort him through the night until I see the doctor tomorrow. Thank YouView Thread
He is still in some severe pain but he is now in a full leg cast for at least another week. I am trying to alternate on the medicine and not giving him too much. Still not sure if I should let him have some juice since he has been sick on top of his leg issue View Thread
