My dd has been getting her 2 year molars. She got an ear infection the beginning of April from all the drool, it was brutal. Puking, 2 ER trips, dehydration, high fevers, engorgement, 2 hours of sleep in a 48 hour period, a full tank of gas for dh to drive her around so I could rest, wow I do not ever want to do that again. That first molar came in pretty quick, it's all the way in already. It took 4 months for her first molars to break through the gums all the way, so this is a big improvement.
Two more about to break through right now. Then she just had a virus for several days, hand, foot, and, mouth I think.
So really I think that teething can really run them down from not eating as well or sleeping as well and make them more susceptible to catching something. If sucking usually comforts him, but it isn't working now, get his ears checked. It could be an ear infection.
