Quoting *Mary Moon*:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Mommy of 2 + 1 angel:</b>" I had tubes when I was a kid because ... [snip!] ... He may not have even recouped from his first ear infection yet and now its tubes. Meh. I just want an ear infection free week."
Just be sure to get it taken care of ASAP because when I was 3 and a half I was being given amoxicillin for ear infections and it didn't help it get better. I developed spinal minengitis and was in the hospital for a while. They said they had 12 hours left to get it under control or I would have died. People don't realize how bad ear infections can actually be.
Oh and if he's laying down and drinking out of a cup or bottle that can cause ear infections also. I don't think it's ever too young to get tubes.
