So, we found out today that Joshua has his 4th ear infection in his 7 short months since he was born. Fortunately, I think due to his thumb sucking, the last two haven't seemed to bother him a whole lot. He had his first back in November - when he was about 6 weeks old. The last three have been in the last 2 months. So . . . now we take him to an ENT for a follow-up/consultation :o( His pediatrician said it doesn't mean tubes for sure, but it's a possibility. Apparently short Eustachian tubes can be inherited - and Joe had tubes put in when he was little. So, we'll see!
