You would never guess that this little guy has his first ear infection, would you? Poor thing. He just hasn’t been eating much and waking up a lot… We thought it was a combination of teething and a little cold since I am also sick. However, I called the doctor yesterday and the nurse said it may be an ear infection and we should bring him in this morning.
As luck would have it, I received an EarCheck in the mail yesterday. Have you moms heard of this thing before? It’s pretty cool. You just stick it in the baby’s ear and within seconds it checks for fluid in the ear and tells you if the ear is fine, you should monitor it, or take the baby to the doctor. Well, on his right ear it said we should monitor it, but that the left was fine. Matthew and I thought it was so cool that we even checked our ears – no fluid. lol.
Today, his pediatrician said Elias has a very mild ear infection in the right ear, confirming what the EarCheck said! Pretty cool, huh (that the EarCheck was right – not that he has an ear infection)? She is having us keep an eye on him, watch for fever, green snotty nose (gross), not eating at all, pulling on his ear, etc., but prescribed some medicine just in case we need it.
EarCheck graciously is letting me give one away to my readers. (I love giveaways!) So, leave a comment if you would be interested in an EarCheck and I will select a winner Sunday.
