Q.

Headache

How do you know if your LO of 15 months has a headache.
He covers his ears with both hands for a short while and then is fine (almost like a joke). He recently had an ear infection bt it is clear. He still has not said his first words

The most likely cause for his behaviour is an ear infection rather than a headache. Ask your doctor to check him again to be certain that he does not have another ear infection.
