my 5 mth old holds her hand up to her ear...she doesn't tug on it she just covers it up...she used to play with both but now its just one ear and she isn't playing with it..its like she doesn't want air to get in it...shes fussy when its time for naps and bed..but still sleeps through the night 8-9 hours at a time...but she refuses to nap in her pack and play anymore...maybe because its so low to the ground.. but naps fine in her question is..could this be an ear ache/infection or is she just going through some type of phase?
