We lasted 97 child months before our first official ear infection. Niamh had a fever that she couldn't get rid of, so Emily took her to the doctor. She was given a prescription for 7 days of Amoxicillin. Niamh was back to normal after about 24 hours.
It was amazing how much quieter the house was when Niamh was sick and rested most of the time. The volume is back up to normal now that she is feeling better.
