5. Baking Soda
What it is: Baking soda is a great natural way to help clean the inside of your toddler’s ears. You can get baking soda at any grocery store and you can find it in most health stores.

Benefits: A friend of mine told me that her son’s earwax was so bad that he couldn’t sleep at night and was really frustrated about the constant scratching at his ears. When she started using baking soda, the only thing she could feel was the buildup in his ears melting away. His doctor also noticed a difference in how quickly the earwax stopped coming out once he started using it and it was as if it was completely gone.
How to use: You can either apply baking soda to the inside of your baby’s ear by pouring it directly into the ear canal or you can pour it into a damp washcloth and use it to clean the inside of your baby’s ears.
