Baby was pulling her ears for a month but last night she was crying and pulling her ear...what could it be? Is it teething or ear infection

Ears: You can not tell without checking the ear out. You can have low grade fever with teething and infection. Higher fevers would usually be an infection. If the child does not stop crying would have the pediatrician evaluate for infection. ...Read more

Crying (Definition)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations. Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

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. But if not i would want to know if the child is having a fever? Eating? Lethargic? If there are any acute worrisome signs today then getting into the clinic is appropriate and perhaps urgent today. ...Read more

Hi my baby start teething and she is always crying. And having fever what can I do to help her?

Teething and pain: Generally Ibuprofen is much more effective for teething than tylenol (acetaminophen). You can also let your baby chew on a cold teething ring.Some parents have found camilia really aids in teething discomfort. It is important you do not give your baby more than four doses of Acetaminophen in any one day. Acetaminophen really challenges the liver. Massaging the gum tissue with a soft bristle brush can also help. ...Read more

My baby is 32 weeks old n has been screaming n crying in night n won't settle, is it teething?

It's possible: It's possible that your infant is teething. See if you can feel a tooth coming through the gums. Sometimes sucking on a cold teething ring can alleviate discomfort. Teething can cause generalized fussiness, but should not cause extreme pain. If your infant is inconsolable at night, then you should consult your pediatrician. ...Read more

My 8mo.Old baby starts teething and has fever since her front upper tooth appear, also has cold, is it normal?Baby feel iritated and crying

Prob not teething: Teething by itself will not give a fever over 100.4. So if the baby is crying and congested and has fever, he or she probably has an infection, either viral or bacterial. I would bring the baby to your pediatrician to find the reason for the fever. ...Read more

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?

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. His crying at night could be due to some separation fears which often arise at this age. I doubt the cereal change is causing pain unless there is significant constipation. Try soothing him with a transition object like a blanket at bedtime and it may help during the night. ...Read more
