21 weeks, loads of poo and sticky ear

My DD is 21 weeks today. She has done 10 large poos since 8am this morning. Her right ear is also very sticky. I think she might be teething she is dribbling alot and if I feel in her mouth there is something there a little bit sharp, but I can't see anything.

Do I need to worry or do anything?
She doesn't seem to be in any pain, not crying, but is a bit grizzly and not wanting to sleep. I BF and she seems to have hardly eaten anything today and bobs on and off alot, but not as if she is in pain.

PS I know I am neurotic. I am a first time mum living away from family.

Thanks

Poor you and babe. Do you mean sticky ear as in discharge coming out of her ear? If so (and more so if it smells) likely to be an ear infection, I would say. They can cause dribbling, also. A GP will give her a quick once-over and some antibiotics if he or she thinks it's a bacterial infection.
Let us know how you get on.

really glad nothing wrong. Ear infections rarer in BF babies so did think maybe it wasn't...
