My LO has had 5 ear infections since January. His fourth ear infection was a double and he had a burst eardrum. No sooner than a week after that cleared up he got a fifth ear infection in the ear that didn't have the burst drum. He's still on antibiotics for ear infection #5 and now we believe he has a sixth double ear infection. We have an appointment with an ENT for July 15th, but this is just getting ridiculous. I am at a loss as to what to do, and my poor baby is so used to being in pain that he isn't even fussy: he just holds his ears (that's his telltale sign). I killed myself to nurse and EP for this baby because it supposedly reduced the rate of ear infections. I guess we just got a sh!tty luck of the draw.
Does anyone have a LO that has needed tubes? We were holding out against this, but it looks inevitable. Thanks for listening-I guess this was a vent.
