Q:

Hiii eveveryone my  baby  8 month 10 days old  and she always  rub her  ears what is the reason????



asha chaudhry

hey raveena - that could be her way of saying she's sleepy or somethg else? whn my daughter was a baby she would scratch her head whn she was irritable, hungry, sleey, hot and continued to do that even till she was 6 yrs old!!! observe her carefully and the next time u r visiting the dr u can mention it and also get ears checked so u are not worried later on :)

rubbing ear could be a sign of ear infection.  is the baby restless? ? plz consult your pead.

sometimes they do that when they are teething . or maybe some infection . press and see if ur baby is crying if not don't worry .

If wax accumulation is more and some babies ear will be very wet...then they feel itching. As she don't know to clean her ear..she is rubbing. Sometime when giving bath..if water enters ... ear will be blocked , for that reason also they will rub. Cut her nails and file it. And clean ears gently ( only if you are confident and doing quite often). orelse Consult doctor and ask them to do that for you.
I use to clean my baby ear right from very young age. Now as she can talk..she will ask to clean. And when she was young...use to show earbuds to clean.

yes, agree with asha chaudhry... my baby also rubbed his ear when he was irritated or sleepy... its common... just ask doctor, and dont try to clean baby's ear yourself... sometimes a loss of steady hand can damage the baby's ears...
