  • i think it's johnson and johnson that makes q-tips for babies. they're really big toward the stick, but the tips are a smaller, shorter area. they allow you to clean your kids ears w/o sticking the q-tip in too far. i found them at burlington coat factory, but they may be available at target or walmart.
