A lot of you ladies seem to have a lot of experience with babies and children in general, and are very smart, so this is why I preferred to ask this here.
I haven't looked up anything about it online yet and I haven't talked with my doctor yet either.
My 2.5 year old son tends to get ear infections; not a lot of them, but especially this time of year. Since September he has had 3 of them. I know of some kids who get one a month and all year round.
Do any of you know how to prevent ear infections? Or is there even a way to do it?
I'm just really curious. My 4 year old was breast fed for almost a year and he never gets them, but my 2 year old was only breast fed for about 2 weeks because of complications. Sometimes I just want to kick myself for the fact I couldn't breastfeed my 2 year old longer.
Advice and opinions please would be appreciated :-)
