You have put your concerns very clearly here.The main thing is that your son appears to hear well. Usually after an ear infection there will be sterile fluid behind the ear drum which may persist for months. Your son has only had one ear infection as far as I can make out. There does not appear to be valid reason to insert grommets in his ears. The fluid should disappear on its own after 6 months or so.
