babies have deep creases just behind their ears..right where the ear meets the head...make it a point to rub a washcloth in those creases really good, and use some safe powder, like burts bees buttermilk powder. milk can creep down their jawline and settle behind their ears.

If you dont keep it clean, it can develop a huge sore back there...

Yes I was going to say ear infection or maybe a foreign body in the ear.

My dd had stinky ears. I think that's just who she was. Actually, it got soo much worse in the heat. I made sure to clean them out at every other bath, or so. They would get really dirty with grody wax in them. Unfortunately she hates to have her ears cleaned, so.....
