    Ear grabbing but no crying

    my 8 month old daughter is always grabbing her ear, but never cries. idk if its something to be worried about. but i have had people tell me it would be best to tell her pediatrician. I sure would love some feedback if someone here who is experienced to tell me what this means.

    Hi there,

    I have a daughter who is almost 8 months and doing the same thing, my close friend is a nurse at Grand River Hospital and informed me that it just means she is teething and teeth are coming in on that side. My daughter only pulls on her left ear and already has two teeth so all it means is that more teeth are on there way so as far as I know there is no need to be concerned. Hope this helps
