Q.

Grommits

My boy got grommits at the age of 6 months. At 20 months, they replaced the grommits again. The doc repeatedly told me to keep his ears dry - which we do. I have noticed that there comes stuff out of his ears every few weeks. Is this reason to worry, or is it good that the stuff comes out and not stay inside? I do not want to take my boy (2 1/2 years now) to the doctor every second week. What should I do?

Do not be concerned. This simply means that the grommits are indeed doing their job by clearing the mucous from your son's middle ear. Continue to keep his ears dry. You are doing well.
