In brief: Yes
I've known a few kids to respond to this.
This is not a scientific answer i'm giving you, but i've seen several occasions where children appeared to get better after all dairy (not just milk) was removed from the diet.

In brief: No evidence of that
There is no scientific evidence of milk intake causing ear infections.
This is a longstanding tale without any data. People do get better sometimes after stopping milk. They also get better when stopping tomatoes, watching the moon rise, and having the democrats win a presidential election. In other words, it is usually coincidence, not cause and effect.
