Lately Iki seems really uncomfortable with his right ear. He always points cotton buds and asks me to clean his ear. So I always do that to make him feel better. But indeed, he's not getting any better at all.
Once I brought him to the doctor and asked him to check his ear. I didn't dare to put the cotton bud too deep so I thought there must be lots of dirts inside his ear. But the doctor said it was okay. That there's nothing to be worried about his ear.
Day by day Iki is getting more uncomfortable with that ear. He kept rubbing it and pointing the cotton buds. So last 3 days, after bath I tried to clean the ear deeper. Indeed, i got a pretty big dirt. But Iki cried a lot. Since then he never let me clean his right ear yet he kept rubbing it for so many times in a day.
I started to get worried. And so did Hiro.
He looked for information at the internet and baby books about baby's ear treatment, and found one shocking fact.
"BABY'S EAR SHOULD NOT BE CLEANED USING COTTON BUD. IT WILL JUST PUSH THE DIRT DEEPER INTO THE EAR"
What??!?! God....I've been doing it for over a year!!!!! I felt like I lost my power. Can you imagine?! How much dirt would it be inside Iki's ear by now?!
Must go to ear specialist now to clean the dirt, and check Iki's hearing ability. It was saturday night (oh no, midnight!), and I must wait until Monday (T_T). Couldn't sleep the whole night.
What if....hmmmm I don't want to say it here, but I am so worried (_ _o)
