The tubes do not prevent infections--they help the ears drain properly. I have 3 kids---ALL--of whom have tubes. The tubes help to cut down, but do not stop the infections. I thought this to because with my oldest she did not get infections until they fell out, but my son had a couple, and my 2 year old had more. She has one tube out now, and has had 2 infections so I think she will get tubes again soon.
