What does it entail? What are the rules with tubes? My 10 month old is a prime candidate they said because he has had 12 ear infections in the last 4 months! I am a little nervous!

it depends on your Dr.  each one does it different and each have different "After" care for them.

but be prepared,,, with that many infections, they can still get infections with tubes.

DD had 9 ear infections & 3 doubles in 5 months and she got her tubes at 11 months old and had 4 more after with the tubes in.  

thenn one tube fell out and her drum ruptured. then 4 more infections... then the other fell out and she got one more infection.. she is 3 now and since the last tube fell out 4 months ago she had 1 infection.

Poor kiddo. :( I don't know. My kids don't have them. I did when I was little but that was a long time. Things change. Good luck.

Both of mine have had them. The worst part for us was the anesthesia and coming out of it. The amount of infections went down from 5-8 a year to maybe 1-2, but I noticed they weren't as bad. My youngest became more sensitive to sounds as well.

And custom ear plugs are awesome.
