Is there anyone out there with a similar story than mine? Our baby boy was born 13/03/2018. We were released from hospital On 14/03/2018. The pediatrician cleared him for discharge. On 15/03/2018 we took him back to the hospital because he cried allot and it seemed like he was in pain. We arrived at the hospital 05:45 the Dr on call had a look at him and advised us that he needs to call the pediatrician that discharged him. We waited for the pediatrician for 5 hours she only attended to us 10:45. Our baby cried continuously for those 5 hours and the DR on call made the call not to admit our baby to ICU because according to him he looked healthy. The pediatrician came into the room and without even examining our baby she diagnosed him with colic. She just picked him up and rocked him a few times and then confirmed again it was colic. I advised her that he is not feeding well and he is struggling to sleep because of the pain. She said he is a newborn he will still learn to feed and he is struggling to sleep because of the stomach cramps. He also had 3 dirty nappies at the hospital while we waited she said that's normal as well. I then told her how he screams so much pain he is in she then said again it's because of the stomach cramps it will pass. She gave us a script and send us home. Saturday morning (17/03/2018) we woke up to find our son passed away in his cradle. The autopsy confirmed he died of neonatal meningitis.
