I have a 6-month-old girl. She keeps poking her own ears to the degree of bleeding a bit.
The only way I can think of is to trim and polish her finger nails often but is there any other way to prevent this from happening?

Trimming fingernails is obviously a way to prevent cutting and bleeding, but it is worth looking at why she may be sticking her fingers in her ears. It may be just a habit, in which case distraction techniques can work, but it could be an indication that she has pain or irritation in her ears and is trying to alleviate that. A quick visit to the doctor could have a check on ear irritation.
