When babies are born they have good strong ears. Their ears are listening and this helps them learn. “Say mumu” Sometimes germs can get inside and stop their ears from listening. “Say mumu” Germs can go to their ears, and make them sick When children have sick ears they might be cranky But sometimes they feel fine. Teach children to blow their nose to help stop the germs going to their ears. Take children to the clinic regularly so they can have their ears checked. If their ears are sick you will be given medicine. Give medicine the way the health worker tells you to. Then go back to the clinic to make sure their ears are better. Sometimes when children get an ear infection they can get a hole inside their ear. If there is pus, clean the ear with tissue spears After the ear has been cleaned give the medicine the way the health worker tells you to. Then go back to the clinic to make sure their ears are better, and the hole has healed. So get rid of germs and look after your children’s ears. Teach children to blow their nose so germs don’t go to their ears. And teach them to wash themselves so they don’t carry germs to other people. Babies are born with good ears. Help stop germs from hurting children’s ears and keep your family strong.
