Has anyone's older child had ear tubes put in? I will be taking DS to the ENT on Tuesday and I'm assuming that he will suggest tubes, but I've never heard of an older child getting them. My DS had 3 double ear infections last year in 6 months all resulting in ruptured eardrums then they stopped over the summer. Now we are back to having them again. He had a single infection on 11/18 and then a double on 12/21. He had a check-up in between so we know that the first one cleared up.
