Cole is 15.9 lbs and 25 3/4 inches. And he has another ear infection :(. I'm really hoping this isn't becoming a pattern.my oldest had ear infections since a few weeks old, 2 sets of failed tubes, 1 set had to be surgically removed because it migrated when it was moving through the canal, has had her ear drum patched twice,has had two cholesteatomas removed and she currently has an osteoma growing in her ear canal. I really hope this doesn't happen to him either. Is there anything like holistically I could do to prevent anymore ear infections inhim?, as I think a lot of her ear issues stemmed from the constant reoccurring infections,she wasalmost always on antibiotics.

Oh no...I remember as a child they were constantly giving me warm ear drops. I have no idea what helps now but I hope you find a solution.

Probiotics, if you are breastfeeding I would take them if not they make infant probiotics.  Also, cod liver oil capsules could help bump the immune system.  The trick is to strengthen the immune system so it can fight off infections before they strike

Sounds like it could be a gut issue if they are recurrent. Try probiotics and try to heal that immune system through his gut for prevention. Also garlic oil drops in the ear for treatment. Garlic is a natural antibacterial. Or you could also use apple cider vinegar while you are getting/making the garlic oil. GL and I hope he feels better soon!
