See below: He may have another cold that stacked on top of the other illness or the ear infection not improving. He likely needs to be seen again. If he is having any present high fevers over 39 c or any breathing difficulty, get seen now.

He needs to have his: Ears re-checked by his pediatrician. Middle-ear fluid can persist for weeks after infection clears & cause discomfort when he lies down. Keep his head up 30 degrees when bottle-feeding; no bottles in bed. At 9 mos., night-waking/crying will continue long after the illness is gone, because he had to have attention for it. His parents will need to know when it's ok to ignore it so it will go away.
