My toddler might have an ear infection. He had a chronic one from 6 months old to one year. Then he got tubes and "only" got ear infections every 6 weeks. Then at two he got tubes again and if this is an ear infedtion he has got, it will be the fourth...I think...since his tube and adenoid surgery 8 months ago. I am at my wit's end. He was to have a third set of tubes last week but I canceled the surgery. Tubes or not, he gets ear infections, major hearing loss, and speech delays.
I have thought of elimination diets, no wheat or dairy. But if it weren't for cheese, milk, yogurt, crackers...all he'd eat would be apples, bananas, and sausage. He eats aybe 500 calories a day and is only 24 lbs , 18 month pants fall off of him and he is almost three. So I cannot feed him any less. So I am not sure what to do.
UPDATE, its an ear infection...a BAD one. He is just cupping his ear and sobbing :(
