Kelsey was born 22nd october 2003 she was premature, 4 weeks early but she wasnt in an incubator or anything as she was healthy.
The first year of her life was a bit disturbed as she had alot of colic which cashed her to be rushed in and out of hospital. During her first year she also had broncalitus and gastroenteritis. She had an ear infection in her right ear when she about 1 yr old and she has now got one again. Her father suffered from ear infection and now he has a gromit, could it be passed down in the jeans. I dont smoke but i live with my mum who does smoke which im not sure could make the situtation worse. I noticed she had an ear infection when she was tugging at her ear and i could see that it was full with wax but you shouldnt clean thier ears as they are a self cleansing organ. But please help so i can prevent this as i got told ear infection could lead to parcal deafness.

could you please answer applicable questions:
Acute Case Questionnaire
1. Onset--did the complaint come on suddenly or gradually?
2. Etiology--the cause. What happened? What was going on at, or about, the time of the occurrence?
3. Sensation--describe the pain or other feeling. Does it extend anywhere, does it shoot anywhere? For instance, "It feels like there's a crumb in my throat, I'm constantly trying to swallow. The pain shoots to my left ear."
4. Appearance--what does the person, or the part that's bothering the person, look like; anything remarkable? Red skin, droopy eyes, etc.?
5. Location--where on the body?
6. Modalities--what makes the complaint better or worse? Consider: heat or cold, bathing, warm rooms, fresh air, drafts, motion, time of day when person gets worse, what position is best/worse, stimuli--conversation, noise, light, touch, pressure, massage, music, company, consolation, etc.
7. Concomitants (additional symptoms that came with the main complaint)--for instance, pain with crying; pain with excessive salivation; pain with nausea--the things that have come along for the ride, fellow-travelers, in other words.
8. Discharges--color, odor, consistency. (A discharge is anything liquid that's coming out, oozing out, etc. So, for instance, runny nose, diarrhea, lacrimation and so on.)
9. Generals--these are all the "I" symptoms: I'm hot, I'm cold, I'm thirsty, I'm tired, I'm sad, I'm irritable, I'm hungry, I want pickles, etc.
10. The mentals: Have the mentals changed from normal, in what way? What's different mentally and emotionally?
11. What does the person say? For instance: "I'm fine, leave me alone." "Don't leave!" "I wanna go home!" "I want ice", etc.
12. Thirst--is the person thirsty, not thirsty, what temperature drinks, what kind of drinks, does he only want sips, or gulps, does he drink a little bit frequently or a lot infrequently, and so on.
15. Odors? Are odors an issue, such as bad breath, foul odors of any sort?
16. What is most striking about the condition? What is most peculiar--for instance, person is cold but heat and covers aggravate; person has burning pains but is better for being covered and hot drinks like tea

Help baby with ear infection symptoms sleep through the night by slightly elevating the mattress in the crib by putting a blanket or another safe item under the mattress. This will help prevent fluid buildup in the tubes of their ears, which causes the pain that wakes up your child. Both of you will sleep better.
