  • Well I would get a second opinion jus for piece of mind.. My 6 month old son has had 4 ear infection so far and different viruses 3 times. He has 2yr, and 4yr old sisters that more than likely gave him the bugs.. but he should have doubled his birth weight by 6 months. if it were me i would go to another ped...hope all gets better for the lil guy!

  • My brother was always a sick baby. He is fine now but gets sick a lot more often than anyone in my family. Lots of ear infections and sinus infections when he was growing up and still till this day.
