He has been off colour for a few days now, but with nothing specific. Yesterday he started complaining about sore ears, and we were woken at 5am today by a boy who was obviously in a lot of pain.
A long trip to minor injuries this morning (thank you the husb) confirmed my suspicions – my boy has an ear infection.
Advice was to keep dosed up on calpol and ride it out, no antibiotics this time (phew, I don’t like giving them antibiotics).
Apparently jelly helps. I see no reason to argue with that.
