Oddly enough, I'm unsure what to do. My 2 yr old (who can still barely communicate) woke up with ear pain or ear ache. I honestly don't know how to approach this. I know mom's that go to the ER for every little thing "better safe than sorry" and I know other mom's that have multiple kids seeing their siblings in pain and try to mimic for attention so they don't overreact and go to the ER for every little thing.
I'm a mom of 4 and none of my kids have complained of ear aches or pains...so I'm puzzled. Maybe he slept on it wrong. Maybe a bug crawled in his ear (yay for tv shows like Monster's Inside Me)...maybe it's something, maybe it's nothing. I really don't know....so I"m stumped here. He's complained about it twice so far since he woke up 2 hours ago. He can go about his day, but then he'll come up to me and cover his ear saying, "my ear." No where on his ear, no how it could've hurt...just "my ear."
The kicker is, hubby is at work and I need to be a parent and not rely on everything he says or suggests. I need to figure out what to do on my own as a mother... I WANT to say that it's nothing...that if it continues like that TOMORROW I should react...but then there's that guilt that if it IS something...I'd be beating myself up for letting it continue. Ugh! The insanity! This is the first time this has happened with us...
How do YOU decide what to do and when to do it with situations like this?!?

i would just make an appointment to the pediatrician office and have it looked at. he could have stuck something in there (i did when i was little lol). it will not hurt to get it checked out.
