Is Baby Teething or Is It an Ear Infection? 5 Symptoms to Look For!

When a baby is teething, it can be difficult to know if it’s just teeth or another underling problem that is making him or her uncomfortable. Teething and ear infections are often confused since they can have similar symptoms. If your baby as any of these signs, teeth are likely the problem:

  • has a fever 
  • is tugging at his ears 
  • has excessive drooling
  • swollen gums 
  • excessive mouthing on objects

Still, we are always happy to take a look just to make sure everything is OK.
