double ear infections

Gabriel had his first non-routine appointment with Concord Pediatrics on Wednesday. He had a fever over the weekend that Tylenol took care of, once we figured out he had a fever. By Monday, he started rubbing his ear against his car seat and bouncy seat. By Tuesday night, it was clear that Gabriel was having discomfort trying to nurse. So on Wednesday morning, I took Gabriel to the pediatrician. The diagnosis was double ear infections. Poor boy! We were instructed to give him Tylenol and Ibuprofen alternately. The two medicines seemed to keep him comfortable enough to sleep and keep him from being grumpy thankfully.
