Ear Infections - Babies 0-1 Year
Your baby just got over a cold a few days ago. Now, just when you thought you were finally in the clear, she's started tugging on her ears - a lot. She hasn't been eating well. She hasn't been sleeping well. She's been way more cranky than usual. And she's starting to run a mild fever. What could it be?
While it's hard to say for certain, she might very well have an ear infection, the most commonly diagnosed illness apart from the common cold in U.S. children. An estimated three out of four children get at least one ear infection by the time they're 3 and babies 6 months to 18 months are the most susceptible. And though ear infections (acute otitis media) may not be terribly serious, they're also not much fun.

Your baby's eye is puffy, reddish-pink and oozing. Maybe the eyelid is even swollen and misshapen.
Try not to worry too much. Chances are what you're looking at is a classic case of conjunctivitis. Also known as "pinkeye," conjunctivitis is an infection of the clear membrane that covers the white part of your baby's eye and the inside of her eyelid. It might be accompanied by cold symptoms or not. Either way, it will probably clear up in about a week.
Sometimes a visit to the doctor and antibiotics are necessary, but rest assured: Pinkeye is one of the most common childhood ailments-especially for babies. It is so common that most people will experience an episode, either in childhood or as an adult. While it's an annoyance and might interfere with your schedule, it's usually not a serious health hazard.
