Q:

my son is pulling his ears hard past few days. also rubbing his nose frequently.  Pls suggest. I give nasal drops at times. But wanted to know what could be the reason for it.

Is baby in pain? crying? Sheeba Rizvi, Sonika Singh, Nazeema Shaheen, Ashika Imthiyaz, Ankita Popli

Nazeema Shaheen

few babies develop this tendency to pull out ears or hair just to show their disagreement to any situation or even when they are sleepy or hungry.just try to find the cause of his discomfort and try to resolve it.dont use any drops.
check for any cold or ear infection ( slowly pull out his ear inwards and down when he's happily engaged with toys) to check for pain in ears.
if it continues consult doctor.i think it's behavioral m not to worry.
thanks for the tag Priya Sood

he pulls his ears particularly when I feed him with liquids. he also hit his head with right hand while breastfeeding like showing his frustration. Nowadays he is not demanding for food and always playing. I somehow manage to feed him by distracting.

hi gomathi, please get him checked by ENT SPECIALIST,he might be having some difficulty swallowing or nose block while feeding .go to a good ENT SPECIALIST
