I'm pretty sure dd has a double ear infection and since its 1:40 in the morning and the dr doesn't open until 8, what are some at home things I can do to help alleviate her pain so she will sleep. We are all exhausted!

I've given her Tylenol so need other ideas. Please!!! Thank you!

Next time I'm at the store ill get some. I have neither. Lol thanks though.

Quoting Momof38186:

Crush up garlic really well and mix it in with olive oil.  The olive oil soothes and the garlic fights the infection.  

A friend of mine uses this and ONLY this to treat her 5 kids and herself when they get ear infections & never uses medications and I have started to use it for me and my 3 children and it works great. We no longer need medication for ours at all.  

I keep some mixed up at all times now.

She let me do the warm compress and I think it helped a little. Enough to where she isn't crying as much. Shes still wide awake though. Thank you.
