Hello Anna, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.

Children under the age of three (toddlers) are the group most at risk of developing aqueous ear infection, because their immune systems are still vulnerable and eustachian tubes in their ears are shorter, narrower, and flatter than those of adults. Basically, normal earwax is found in everyone, but it is different if the baby's ears smell and are accompanied by white or yellowish fluid, it becomes a sign that the child's ear is infected.

Watery ears in children can be caused by several things, such as middle ear infections (otitis media) caused by viruses or bacteria, allergies, sinus swelling, polyps, tonsils, or changes in air pressure.

I suggest you take your child to a pediatrician or ENT specialist doctor for a thorough examination, such as question and answer, physical examination of the ear, and supporting examinations if necessary, so that treatment can be given according to your child's diagnosis.

As for the things you can do right now are:

Ear warm compresses for about 10 to 15 minutes to reduce pain
Maintaining adequate fluid so that it can help open the eustachian tubes so that trapped fluid can flow. Give breast milk for at least 6-12 months. The antibodies found in breast milk will protect the baby from ear infections.
Raise the baby's head, to improve the sinus drainage. Don't put pillows directly under the baby's head.
Avoid using pacifiers or pacifiers because of the risk of recurring ear infections.
Keep baby from exposure to cigarette smoke because it can make ear infections worse.

Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
