For the past few weeks Matt has had a small cold. The pedi said not to worry. Recently, Matt has been waking up in the middle of the night crying for no apparent reason. I thought it was because he was ending up on his belly and wouldn't roll back over. Every night I said I was going to call the pedi but he was always so happy in the morning that it seemed silly to call. The past two days his cold has gotten much worse. Finally this morning I called and they said they could see him immediately.
Turns out he has a small ear infection. sigh. I wish I had called earlier. I feel so bad that he was suffering. The pedi put him on antibiotics for the next ten days. Matt didn't have a fever and he felt great during the day - no difference just upset at night. So now I know to call earlier rather than later.
