  • Maybe he has a headache or an ear infection? It's hard at that age to tell you what's wrong.....

  • yes babies can have headaches, or it could be a reaction to the shots if it started right after that. I would look up the shots, and the adverse reactions to them. It could also be an ear infection, or him teething. I would take him to the doctors.

  • Why didnt you ask the dr? If this happened 2 days ago and you had him at the dr yesterday? He can be teething have a headach an ear infection. A number of things. Give him so tyloney and see if that helps him

  • Did this start right after the vaccinations? I would call?

    During the check up did the doc check his ears?
