My baby girl loves taking baths but, of course, we get conflicting information about how often and how careful we should be of water in her ears. The pediatrician said every other day and didn't say anything about being careful about getting water in her ears (though, maybe it's obvious since, you know, you gotta keep her head above water).
Anyway, is it really that big a deal if water gets in her ears? She turns her head and unless I try really hard water makes it's way in there, especially when washing her hair.
Will this cause ear infections? For reference, the infant in question is seven weeks old.
