My baby keeps trying to take her hand to her ear and nose regularly seems as if it's itching her. She's 8 months old. Can anything serious be their?

Sumira Bhatia

I don't think it should be a problem . . Is she overall normal and happy ?

Neha Mani Mishra

Generally baby scratch their head or nose or ear when they feel sleepy or she teething? If she is teething then she may do it to show her discomfort

Sowmya Prithvi (sonu)

Agree with neha.. even my baby does when he is sleepy..!! nothing to worry..

Kavita Sahany

Yes babies do the scratching when they feel sleepy ...try soothing the baby n do it gently..they go to sleep .
Check if the baby does it after waking up n In a fresh moos too ...if yes then check for allergies

Babies also rub their ear sometimes when teething. So this might be a reason. You can still get the ear checked for any water or wax or infection to be rest assured.
