Hubby just got a new job and is working at least 10 hours everyday and we only have one car so I really don't want to take the baby to the ped unless I have to.

He has had an elevated temp for a week and a half!!!! I'm done now...this is too long. Sometimes when I put him down he gets mad and pushes his little body out . He is only 16 weeks not even 4 mos yet! I thought it was teeth but I have yet to find a bump and can't imagine this lasting much longer.

is there anyway for me to know that its prolly an ear infection? I don't know if he is old enough to grab at his ears he truly just learned how to put his hand in his mouth.

To me, it sounds like teething. Just because you don't feel a tooth doesn't mean he isn't teething. kwim?

You could always give your dr's office a call though and ask about the symptoms and then your dr can let you know if you do need to come in :}
