Ear Infections

There is not too much you can do at two in the morning when your child is crying because of an ear infection. You try to make the child as comfortable as possible and wait for the doctor’s office to open. Ear infections are a common problem for children, but one they usually outgrow by the time they are six. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders has an Ear Infection Packet they can send to parents, explaining how these infections occur and current treatment options. For more information, contact National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders Clearinghouse, P.O. Box 37777, Washington, DC 20013; 800-241-1044; {www.nichd.nih.gov/}.
