So Lexi's first cold is happening right now. Last night was so bad - she was on/off crying for 2 hours, then slept fitfully the entire night, calling out every 2 hours. I took her to the pedi this am and she has her first ear infection! Ugh. I just hope she doesn't get chronic ear infections like my son did and end up needing tubes.

I.hate.ear.infections Poor little lady!! I hope she gets better quick. And stays that way. We have been doing the "avoid the tubes" song and dance for the past three months. So far, it's been moderately successful. But I suspect we are heading for another one right now and I'm dreading what the doc says if she has one

I would say if she only now is having her first ear infection, then she should be in the clear as far as needing tubes. We've had about 3 of them so far.

Joy, my son didn't start with the chronic ear infections until he started preschool, so he was already 2.5! He had maybe 2-3 prior to that, and none prior to 11 months. It's really bc I have sheltered Lexi from any germs/sick kids. I did the same with my son. She literally has never been sick until now. My son's first illness wasn't until 11 months, and he had an ear infection as well. We'll see. Fingers crossed!

Poor Lexi. Hope she gets to feeling better soon. Avery had her first cold about a month ago and we are already on number 2. The runny nose doesn't bother me, but that poor little congested baby cough breaks my heart.

Wow, that's great that she hasn't been sick yet. Testament to your vigilance! My kids have been sick a lot this winter. I'm tired of it. I hope she feels better soon!

Poor baby, that stinks! Brock has been sick 3 times, once with pneumonia at New Years so it's terrible.

This has been a tough winter for the babes. Hope she is better soon!! Look up putting drops of breast milk in her ear.

^^Weve also had success with garlic oil. Makes her smell like an Italian restaurant...but does the trick! Lol.

I think my kids just have broken ears, really. All three of mine have battled a very large number of them. Liam from 4-24 months. He had about one or two a month that entire time. Kieran started later, like your son, and got them primarily between 11 months and 20 months, he has been clear for a while. Jo doesn't get them and then heal, which is problematic. She had one chronic one from October until December that responded to nothing we did. Finally got rid of to have a quick one in January that thankfully took a hike easily. I just worry about her getting another one like that first one that caused a blood infection. That was scary. And I don't think my doc would tolerate another of those before just going straight to tubes. Blah....ears are for the birds!! Otherwise my kids are remarkably healthy!! Very few colds, viruses, or other issues, just those darn ears.
