Ear Pain in Infants and Children

You have said that your baby doesn't have a fever, is feeding normally, having wet diapers and not too sleepy. That is reassuring.

Babies can not use words to tell us they have ear pain. They may tell us in other ways.

Is your baby

  • having trouble sleeping

  • crying when you put his head down

  • pulling or tugging at the ear

  • having fluid draining from the ear?

Yes, my baby has one or more of these symptoms.

No, my baby does not have these symptoms.
