  • Yes. If your inner ears are still clogged, your balance is off. It can't hurt to have him seen. If it's normal toddler clumsiness, the doctor will tell you that.

  • yes that is very true.

    if you talk to an ENT doc about the infections he's had and the balance issues, they'll probably suggest tubes in his ears
