My 4 year old daughter has to "go under" to get her ear tube replaced. Any suggestions on how to prepare her for what will be happening?

  • i would tell her that she is going to sleep just like she was taking a nap and when she wakes up everything will be back to normal - and if she wants to pick out a place to go to or eat at or get icecream for being a good girl.

  • well that is a tough one.my son had tubes in his ears and I would just tell her she has to go to the doctor and get her ears fixed and when she wakes up she will feel better.they still don't fully understand!!!It is mentally exhausting though.I feel for ya
    Good luck
