My son had frequent ear infections from when he was 9 months old to the age of 1 1/2 year and this caused his hearing to be damaged. His speech is delayed and he is now 4 years old going on 5. The augmentin and the lower dosage of augmentin didn't do anything for his ear infections and EVEN when we had our son take the whole thing he would still have fluids in his ears and they wanted to "wait" to see if he would have more infections to place the tubes in his ears and once they told us that his ear infections stopped. Now he has delayed speech and a very limited vocabulary and we the parents are the only ones who understands him. Am I the only parent with the problem? I breastfeed him till he was 3 months old and pumped when I went back to work but breastfeed him when I would get back home.
