Daughter has bad ear pain when I put her down fast. GP say it throat infection. I forgot to tell him it only happens when she goes down fast. Should I worry/go back?

You have made a good observation. Your baby could well have an ear infection. The pain is always worse when babies with ear infections lies down due to changes in pressure in the middle ear. You should go back to the doctor for an opinion.
