    Default How are GPs treating infant ear infections these days?

    Yeah, guess I'll just have to see what the GP says tomorrow. Thanks girls
    If he had an ear infection he'd be pretty cranky during the day too. Bacterial ear infections are usually accompanied by fever and sometimes green snot.

    Sounds like another issue. Hope it sorts itself out soon. Good luck with the GP

    Thanks girls. Funnily enough, after deciding last night to take him to the doctor in the morning to have his ears checked, he woke up with the green snotty nose and sneezes his sister has! Poor little fella. Another bad night last night but fortunately he's pretty chipper during the day. Oh, and most importantly, doctor said no ear infection! She did, however, give me a referral to a baby sleep clinic, which means his sleep problems are due to something else (she believes it's teething). I think I'll start a new post on that, though. Thanks again!

    Mostly antibiotics! It is possible that they're happy during the day. Ear infections hurt the most when they are lying down! My dd had an ear infection when she was younger and I had no idea. No fever, no snot - just unsettled at night! That is until her ear drum perforated! I felt like such a terrible mother but there were no symptoms!! Always best to get them checked out!

    Yep, that's what I say. We had a very similar experience with our DD a couple of years ago - no daytime symptoms, just the wailing at night when we laid her down in bed. She had amoxycillin (sp?), too.

    My 9wo DD had two middle ear infections at 5 weeks poor thing. She was put on pediatric Amoxyl drops for 5 days.
