Ears are draining but doesn't seem to be hurting

Daughters ears have seem to be draining latly. When i look inside , i can see a little of brown,l ike the was has been running. On both sides. But they don't seem to be bothering her like she has an ear ache or anything. I always try to swab them out after a bath and usually get a little wax but not much. IS she trying to get an ear infection? Or is that pretty normal? Should i use peroxide to clean them out? Before the pediatrician said not to clean there ears with regular q tips because a lot of times we can cause it to be worse bu [ushing it farther in there. So i use the baby q tips to swab with. It is an ear infection or not?

  • sounds to me like she has gotten water in her ears from bathtime. if it is not bothering her i would say just clean them out and keep an eye on them...make sure it doesn't change colors..my daughter has this too and it's just water getting in her ears...good luck!
