Elias has another ear infection. This is his fourth ear infection in four months, so yesterday we had the conversation with our pediatrician about considering tubes. The thing about Elias’s ear infections is that they are not just in one ear and they continue to heal and come back. It is exhausting – and hard to know that Elias is in pain. He is such a happy baby that you would never know that his ears are so crummy. She is going to check him in two weeks in hopes that the infection will be healed, test his hearing and we will discuss next steps then.
If you have gone through this with your kid(s), I’d love to hear from you! Were you glad you made the decision to do tubes? Did you try anything alternative first – like baby chiropractic care, which I have heard can help with some babies… Did your baby have to have tubes multiple times? What do you wish you had known going into it?
Thank you for sharing your experiences. I know it will help us as we consider this decision, as well as other moms who read this blog and are in this situation!
