My baby Kate has to have tubes put in her ears. Year after year, my class is filled with children that have them. I know it's not a big thing but I guess it feels like a much bigger deal when it's your baby. She has fluid in both ears. He also said that he thinks shes a bit delayed in speech and physical development.
I do understand. She babbles but she doesn't repeat words or sounds. She can't stand on her own and won't let go of what shes holding onto because she will lose her balance and fall. She will walk if you hold her hand but that's it.
So in two weeks she will have tubes put in. They said I could go in with her until she's asleep and then go back in when she's awake. All about 10 minutes. I'm still scared.
I'm trying to remember the positive. She'll sleep better. No more tossing and turning and whining in her sleep. She'll start saying words and even take a few steps. Her ears won't bother her anymore. Overall, she'll be a happier baby, although she is a very quiet happy baby now, she'll just be happier.
