7mo old up crying last night. Pulling at ears, no fever. Has 2 teeth, but never screamed at night like that. Seems ok today. Dr or wait?
Crying Babies: There is nothing more aggravating as seeing your child in pain or misery. But, it sounds like the crying has subsided today? If it has then waiting is fine.

My 9 month old is constantly waking up at night crying in pain. I know he's teething, but could it be from switching from rice to oatmeal cereal?
Probably not teeth: It is unusual for teething to cause enough discomfort to awaken a child from sleep, unlike ear infections.
