Going Crazy

My son is 9 moths old, Formula feed, teething little man. He just got his first tooth and is starting to get a second. We just flew up to MN on the 4th for a funeral and about Saturday the 11th or Sunday the 12th he started to get really overly fussy and pulling his ears, and not sleeping well at night. So I thought it was just because he was away from home, and teething. But we got home on monday and he is doing the same thing. I took his temp today and it was at 101.6 gave him some tylonal and it went down to 100.6 an hour later. but he is still overly fussy and pulling on his ears. any suggestions??

  • Probably an ear infection. Get him to the pediatrician ASAP.

  • My son pulled on his ears while teething - everything is connected but I still brought him in every time he did that with extra effort in case it was an ear infection.!
