Let’s be honest, every parent nowadays is guilty of consulting Dr. Google before calling the Pediatrician. Why? Because we're hoping to solve the great mystery afflicting our children ourselves! But it's difficult to know why a young child tugs at their ear – there are many reasons!
The tube that connects the ears to the throat is normally closed, but opens with swallowing or yawning. In adults, the tube is larger and slants down towards the throat; but in children, it’s narrower, shorter, and horizontal – making it more susceptible to blockage! When fluid builds up behind the eardrum, it’s not only irritating, it can allow for unwanted bugs to set up shop!
Comfort and calm your little one with a few warmed drops of our Mullein Flower Ear Oil – to support a healthy microbial environment in the middle ear and a proper immune system response!
Extra cuddles encouraged for maximum benefit!
