3 mth old not himself


since yesterday my 3 month old is drinking less at his feeds. he'  s not really interrested in his bottle. he used to go to bed easy at night and last night we struggled till late to get him to sleep. he was a bit '  under the weather'  yesterday and not himself. late afternoon his temp was 38. i gave him panado before he went to bed and he slept well. i phoned the creche now, he is still not himself , not drinking that well and crying more than ussual but no fever. i'  m going to pick him up later and i'  m concerned.
do you think it could be his ears or throat that is sore? should i wait for him to get a high temp before i take him to the doc. or should i just carry on with the panado and see what happens. his nose was a bit blocked last night and i used chamiflor nose spray. i told the creche to give it to him when necessary.

It would be a good idea to take yor baby to see a doctor as he may well have an ear infection.
