Not really: There are operations that may be appropriate, but generally they are not recommended.

Can I clean my baby's ears with a cotton swab?

Yes: Only clean the outer part of the ear and don't insert into the hole. You will wind up pushing in more wax then getting it out.

Feed going up/down!: The best thing you can do to decrease your baby's chance of haivng any ear pain during a flight is to time your feedings for take off and landing. If your baby is nursing or taking a bottle during those times, it will help to open the eustation tube to alleviate pressure changes as the plane ascends and descends.

Depends: Did the injury involve a tear of the ear lobe or a bruise/contusion? If so, this needs to bee seen as a contusion/hematoma will likely need to be drained so that the cartilage in the ear is not destroyed and a laceration needs obvious repair. If you just has some tenderness and no hematoma or laceration, watch and if worsens, seek medical care.
