Earache?: If your baby is touching his ears & is not crying & has no fever, do nothing, but if he is in pain or fussy or with fever it could be an ear infection, teathing & nasal congestion can present the same way. As long as he is happy & playful don't worry , otherwise consult your pediatrician. Good luck.
