  • I don't think so but if it looks worse in the morning I would call the doctor.

  • Just make sure he isn't acting any differently, pulling at his ear or crying more than usual. But if you are still concerned tomorrow, go ahead and call your pediatrician. Hope your little one will be just fine.

  • My daughter did the same thing once. I called her pediatrician. He told me just to watch her for any lethargy or vomiting (signs of injury and/or concussion) but that she should be just fine.

  • He's acting weird as in being mean and wild! He's so sleepy but is hyped up for some reason...I don't think this has anything to do with it tho...maybe not! Thanks you guys (:

  • Probably not, but just look for the head injury signs just in case. More sleepy, vomiting, etc. Maybe the mean and wild is just because he's uncomfortable and it's painful. Could you give him baby Advil or do you have to check with the doctor? If that happened to me, I'd want some aspirin! Poor little guy! Hope he feels better soon!
