Hi ladies. Any suggestions on what to do when you have to fly with a 3 year old with ear tubes? I am going to call the ENT tomorrow to see what he says, but was curious as to what to do. Thanks.

I have a 2 year old with them- and we have flown a few times with no problems at all. The first time I gave her a little children's benadryl just to help if her ears were stuffy from allergies, but since they we have not used anything and she has been fine.

Both of my kids have tubes. It is actually easier on them becaause the hole where the tube is doesn't allow for pressure build up which is what is so uncomfortable.
