oh no! poor baby & mama! it's definitely hard to see our babies in an uncomfortable situation. they are so helpless and we are helpless in the fact that we can't take it all away from them. hopefully he'll get some rest tonight and feel better. sorry mama :(

Poor baby! Ear infections are no fun! My lil man had a horrible ear infection at his 6mos checkup and we didn't even know it.....he had NO signs of one. Anyway. Just know that he can run a high temp with it, so try to keep him comfy. The antibiotic will help the infection and ease the pain, but it will take several days. Be patient and be prepared for a few long nights :( Hope he gets better soon!!!!

It's so hard when they are sick. If you're using a syringe for Tylenol, squirt it in the cheek of his mouth. You may have to hold his arms down, but it's doable. My son had reflux really bad and we had to use Maalox off and on with proscription meds to control it. I got very familiar with using a syringe.

My kids never gave me signs they Then they'd suddenly have the fever to go with it. It happens, Mama. Hang in there. Sometimes the medicine can make them feel bad too.
