Question: My baby is 4months n 16 days she is rubbing her ear so many times it's natural or any problem
Answer: It could be due to teething or ear infection.
Check you baby's ear for any sign of swelling or redness. You can get it checked by your paediatrician to rule out the chances if ear infection. .
Teething is a very natural process but often parents build up bad ideas around it due to which they panic more than the baby.
There are few things to keep in mind, if followed you and your baby will sail through this phase.
First, have patience. This will help you stay calm and wouldn't let you take hasty decision. Teething is something which will happen it might be little painful for your baby. You can't share his pain but you can always provide comfort. Hence being calm will come handy here.
Second, You ll find many people saying that during teething baby becomes thin suffers diarrhea fever etc. Its not true.
These are not cause because your baby is teething, these happens when proper hygiene is not followed around baby. During teething baby tends to put his hand or object in his mouth and tries to chew on them, as this helps him release the pressure caused by erupting teeth on the gum. Often these objects or baby’s hand carries germs which get transferred to baby’s body giving him loose motion or fever. The severity of the symptoms shows how infected your baby is. So it's mandate to clean baby’s hand and sterilize his toys/pacifier
This would be best time to invest in teether. Buy number of them.
Third, Never feed anything to your baby other than breastmilk/formula milk or apply anything on his gums. You can always massage his gums with your clean finger.
Fourth, Avoid giving over the counter medicine to your baby other than homeopathic calcium supplement. As during teething baby needs extra calcium and sometimes it's not matched up by mother's milk.
Just remember pain makes us stronger. Same goes for your baby. His first one or two teething experience could be painful but he ll get used to for the rest of the others. Don't forget to shower your baby with hugs and kisses.
You both will be fine.
