Post subject: Ear Wax
Hi, does anybody have any good advice on removing ear wax from a 4 month old baby? Thanks.

I asked my HV if earwax was ok as mine had it coming out each day - not like loads of gloop or anything horrid but dry little clumps... she said never remove it apart from wiping it away from the ear itself with a finger or cloth - never try to suck it out with anything or dig it out. She did say however if it was very wet, smelly, greeny/horrid, or there was loads and loads of it then take him to GP as could be in ear infection - but that is definitely not what my LO has. I just wipe any clumps that are sat in his outer-ear away with a muslin. Smile xxx
