Mariette, you can’t wait too long with a baby as young as yours. The fact that he can’t cry might mean that he is to weak or dehydrated and this may lead to serious problems. If it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply, the best would be to see a doctor ASAP. Good luck.

I would suggest take him to the paed ASAP. A baby that young not eating and drinking can dehydrate very quick and the way Bronchilitice and Gastro and Roto Virus are going areound its best not to take any chances.

Good Luck
