How can I tell if baby has an ear infection?

Re: How can I tell if baby has an ear infection?

The Bump Expert

Ear infections are the most common reason children visit their pediatrician for a sick visit. The problem is these symptoms can include fever, irritability, and sometimes ear pulling. Symptoms can also be a sign of any viral infection -- or even teething (though teething doesn’t come with fever). Since most ear infections are caused by viruses, they usually clear up with fluids and time (of course, pain medication helps too!), but they don’t always require a visit to the doctor. In many cases, doctors wait on using antibiotics, so they may ask the parents to monitor the child and return to the office if symptoms progress.

Dr. Paula Prezioso, MD, is in private practice at Pediatric Associates of New York City and is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the NYU Medical School.

I let my baby boy sleep in a wet diaper just so I can get some sleep, I felt bad about it afterwards, but the best moments of sleep ever
