Options: While you can't totally control whether your baby gets any ear infections, we do know some risk factors that tend to increase them: being exposed to cigarette smoke, bottlefeeding in a laid-down position and attending daycare are among them. Seek your pediatrician's advice about other lifestyle choices you can make to keep your baby healthy overall.
