My daughter struggled with ear infections when she was an infant. It would cause her great pain and discomfort and we had many sleepless night. I was used to using a different brand pain reliever and never thought to try Advil. My pediatrician told us to try Advil for the fever, but mostly for the pain she was feeling. It was like night and day with my daughter. Advil helped with her pain level and she was so much happier. I have never thought of using anything else since. I love Advil and it makes me happy as a mom to be able to use something to take away the pain. Advil never caused her stomach to be upset, and she never had any adverse reactions to it. It simply took away the fever very quickly and really helped with the pain. It was a lifesaver for her at night to give her the relief to get a good nights sleep. Give Advil a try, you will not be disappointed, its a mothers dream!
