  • Run a humidifier, chicken broth or chicken noodle soup, lots of fluids, lots of rest, you could even put some vicks on him tonght for bed. Good luck!!

  • Yes. You can run the shower and just sit on the floor with him for about 20 minutes. Let the bathroom steam up pretty good. Also, you can boil and pot of water on the stove. They have baby vicks, it is wonderful stuff if you want to try that as well. Poor baby, my dd had bad ear infections for the 1 year of her life. I hope all goes well tomorrow and they are able to releive his pain.

  • vitamin c every hour, chicken broth, netti pot....and don't panic, mama....even if they cancel, all will be well.......you could try taking him to a chiropractor in the meantime....sometimes adjustments get their immune system to the point of fighting off ear infections by themselves...
