lonelymum - thats the word i couldnt find - it is runny . and baba is well too. ill give her a bath tmrw and gently clean her ear with a warm water cloth... as i wasnt sure whether i could use cotton buds but now i know
with ds1 he always had runny ear wax and constant ear infections - gp said because the infections hot it can melt the wax - dont think i've explained very well but hope you understand what i mean. having said that though, when he had ear infections he used to scream (and i mean scream!)all night and have temperature. i'd get checked out by gp as may be mild infection.
just had a thought - did you post somewhere else that baby has just had a cold/cough? Apologies if it wasnt you (brain must be getting frazzled) but ds1 always got ear infection after a cough or a cold and still does now.
