The garlic will kill the infection and pull out any pain. It's worked everytime. The trick is keeping them distracted while they let that sit in their ear.
Those are all really great ideas, that's what we do for our little girls!

thanks for all the suggestions! she had a rough night last night, up 4 times, so I took her to the doctor to rule out an ear infection. all clear there. she's still pretty congested, but she's also getting molars, so that could be part of the problem too. Leaving tomorrow on a jet plane!
