Earaches: 4 Signs Your Baby May Have an Ear Infection!

It’s common for infants to have earaches, but their inability to tell us about their symptoms makes it difficult for parents to know if it’s something more. We see lots of earaches in our practice, in fact, 50 percent of infants will get an ear infection before they are a year old. Here are some symptoms that it might be an ear infection! 

  • fever
  • irritability
  • poor sleep
  • tugging at ears

If your baby has these symptoms, see your pediatrician!
