Ear tubes for children: your experience

Message length 300 characters recommended

My middle child had tubes placed in his ears around 15/18 months of age because he had so many ear infections and the antibiotics never actually healed them all.

During bath/shower time as well as any swimming time he had to wear these putty like swimmers ear, ear plugs, to keep water out of the ear. If you get water in the ear when child has tubes, it could cause infection.

A year or so later, the tubes came out on their own.
