    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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?
