Question by Mother of E and S and 38 weeks with # 3:
What are the symptoms of H1N1 flu in an infant?

I’ve tried googling it but get nothing specific. Has your baby had it? How bad was it?

Thanks!

My 23 month old has the flu. Since ‘everyone’ has the flu right now they will not test unless your kid is knocking on death’s door, so the only thing the physician told me is if your kid is sick for 72 hours its the flu and for 5-7+ days its the piggy flu. Since we are at about 68 hours and not seeing improvement I am guessing my daughter has the piggy flu.

She has had fevers around 102.7 that do not reduce with tylenol or motrin, she is achey, coughing, sore throat, runny nose, will not drink, vomits, cries all day, and is so clingy. Oh, and she drools pools to the point where she can soak through any cloth in 2 minutes.
