I was going to post something like this but you beat me

I agree with the pp... I've had tubes three times. The first time they had to be removed, they never came out on there own. The second time both came out on their own, but the third time only one did... so it's definitely not unheard of for them to be there long term.

As for ear plugs, I never wore them while bathing. Yes for pool, no for baths... I wouldn't worry too much Mama, just watch him and see
