Anyone else got the ear fluid bug and can't hear a thing?
Have you tried steam inhalation - only helps if eustation tube between nose and ear is blocked. I add menthal crystals but do not know if OK with BF. Could try olbas oil (the one for babies perhaps) and see if that helps. Can the GP or pharmacist suggest anything that is suitable? There are nose sprays that might help and be OK for BF and flying. I used to stick a vick patch on ds when flying with colds that caused ear pressure problems - worth a try for you.
