How to Easily Give Your Child Ear Drops

Children are known for not wanting to sit still for long periods of time, so it is common for parents to ask how to easily give their child ear drops. If your child is suffering from an ear infection or had ear tubes, Dr. Maithilee Menezes, Otolaryngologist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, provides helpful steps to administer ear drops to your child and recommends how frequently the drops should be given. A practical tip is to give the drops twice a day during regular activities like a diaper change for younger children or during your morning and evening routines.
