Do any mamas out there have experience NOT using antibiotics for an ear infection? Did it clear up okay?
This weekend we visited my mom and stepdad (both drs.). My stepdad says to me "you know, they did a study in Sweden that showed that antibiotics shortened the duration of ear infections by only half a day and they don't prescribe them there anymore". He said this in response to my ds being on them.
Hmmmm? Sooooooo, what do I do about dd? I gave her some motrin. She's not crying in pain... in fact, she didn't even tell me her ear hurt until I asked if her ear hurt.
To make sure she wasn't falling under my power of suggestion I asked her which one hurt... and then later asked her which one again and she consistently answered the same one.
What would you do?
