How in the world?

Took Oz to the doc today. He was playing with his ear again, lots of wax and not sleeping well at all. Saturday night he woke every three hours screaming or calling "mamamamamammmmm." Half the time he woke he didn't want a bottle, he wanted to be held. It was a long night. Last night he woke at 3:30 am and when I gave him a bottle, he just kept moving the nipple back and forth from the left to the right nibbling on the nipple.

Anyways back to the doc visit. The goober does NOT have an ear infection. His middle ear and inner ear look perfect! But he managed to somehow scratch his outer ear canal then further managed to get dirt, spit or something that created a bacterial infection. Don't ask me, I have no clue.

So we brought home ear drops from the doc. I have to sit on the boy to place them in his ear twice a day - joy. But tonight when I got them in his ear and started to massage it, he closed his eyes a bit as if he was in ecstasy. Apparently the drops will help.

Oh and he's also a crankbutt because he's sprouting all FOUR of his upper front teeth at once. One has cut through, two are about to and the last one is still a shadow but very close to the surface.
