I recommend that you consult the ENT specialist who placed the grommets in your baby's ears, in order for him/her to see if the grommets are still open. It is a very difficult problem to resolve and sometimes it takes a lot of patience and medication to resolve it.

Kind regards

Hi Siwe

The same happened to my daughter and I almost had a heart attack when I saw the fluid on the pillow. I phoned the Ear Nose and Throat Specialist who did the insertion of the grommets and he told me that it is natural because the grommets allow the fluid to drain from the ear. But please contact him/her just to make sure and maybe to get some medication to clear the ear infection.
