Re: Doctor said ear infections are MY fault

Yes the HIB can prevent a certain type of bacteria from causing an ear infection, but that one bacteria is certainly not the cause of most ear infections! Unless your dr knows for a fact that each of your LO's infections have been caused by that one particular bacteria, he is wrong! Like someone else said, it is mostly the anatomy of kids' ears. I really doubt there is much you can do to prevent certain kids from getting ear infections.

More than likely you had alot of ear infections as a child too.. that's usually a big part of it.


yes i did actually----i had tubes in and my adnoids (sp?) out when i was 2 years old. and my husband was apparently 1 infection away from the same thing. my first son only had 2 ear infections now and he is 5. i think this little girl is just taking after mommy a little too much

What a jerk your Dr is

My DS is 3, fully vaxed up to 18 months and NEVER had an ear infection.

My DD is 20 months has only had the 2 month shots and has NEVER had an ear infection.

DD#2 was vaxed up until 6 months and we stopped. She is now 2 and never had a ear infection. DD#3 never vaxed and never had an ear infection. DD#1 vaxed until 2 years had double ear infections at least 3 times in the first year.

I would not blame it on not vaxing, some doctors will say anything to get you to vax. Some children are just more prone to getting ear infections.

I don't buy it! I have known plenty of vaxed kids with major ear issues!!
