Becky, glad to hear that it's probably nothing serious, but plz keep us posted. You know how we worry :)
Carrie, so very glad it isn't yeast!
Noorjahan, I'm sorry about the on and off feeding. It's such a bother!
Ugh, as for me, HARD 24 hours. Ellie came down with a cold yesterday morning, on top of the teething (oh Lynn, how awful you're going through the same!). I'm pretty sure she has a mild ear infection going on, she's been tugging on her poor little ears, and the colds that both DH and I just had had an earache, so I'm sure it's paining her. But between the teething, the ears, and the cold, she's practically inconsolable. I wasn't able to get her down for bed until almost 3am, and then she woke crying every 20 minutes until morning. I had to bounce her in the Ergo all day. Really, ALL day. I put her down to go to the bathroom, but otherwise I walked around the house with her from 8am - 4:30 when DH got home. She doesn't want to be on daddy at all, and while DH is willing to hold her while she cries, I just can't bear it. My legs are so tired!!! She doesn't want to even sit to nurse, I'm sure being anything other than upright hurts her ears and nose. But I will be very glad when she kicks it.
Anyone know how long it takes ear infections to run their course? I'm quite sure it's viral (accompanied by a cold), so antibiotics from the doctor wouldn't do much good. I'll take her in in a few days if she's still pulling on her ear, but in the meantime, anyone have any tips to make her more comfortable? DS has never had an ear infection, and I don't quite know what to do for them, especially in a little baby.
