  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    First place, water should not enter their ear or mouth. Keep baby above the water level always while giving bath. If a very small volume went inside accidentally, no need to panic. It will not be toxic or cause any serious problem.
    Ear ventilation tubes ( called Eustachian tubes) are more straight and vertical which predisposes them to pass water (in mouth) to middle and subsequent middle ear infection.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
