Kids should stay away from persons who have the cold or flu. Make sure their hands are properly wash on a regular basic, before eating. Also kids should avoid rubbing their eyes and noses.
* Breastfeeding*Breastfeeding helps to the lower the chance of an infant getting ear infections* Breastfeed or feed infants/toddlers in upright positionFeeding in the correct position is very important, as the fluid will not drain to Eustachian tube and cause the infant to have an ear infection. Also ways feed in an upright position
*Daycare*If your child is in daycare, then it is a strong possibility that he/she has constant cold and flu, which sometimes leads to ear infection. Since most daycare can be crowed, which can lead to a greater risk of your child catching cold and flu, try to move your child to a less crowed daycare if possible
*Build Immune System*Give your child enough fruits and vegetables to help build their immune system. Give the daily vitamins and occasionally a dose of cod liver oil, to cleanse the system. Orange juice is a good source for vitamin C to help fight cold and flu.Giving Echinacea which comes in the form of children chewable and drops, can also help boosts the immune system.
