so when cleaning your baby’s eyes ears and nose you want to be as gentle as possible you can use something as simple as a cotton ball in plain water you would dip the cotton ball in water and gently press on the eyelid in the inner eye pushing away from the nose toward the baby’s ear and two times is usually sufficient then you could use a different cotton ball and do the second eye the same way from the inner area by the nose out toward the ear then you would get a different cotton ball and you can clean the baby’s nose cheeks and the rest of their face very carefully making sure the water doesn’t drip into their ear a lot of doctors will recommend you don’t need to do anything with the baby’s ears and you should never ever ever put anything in their ears however some parents like to clean the ears and if you’re going to do that you would use a gentle q-tip and just simply clean the area and you can use anything a plain q-tip or simple q-tip with water and just clean the little ridges the folds behind the baby’s ear any area where there’s folds in the skin sometimes can collect bacteria so it’s very easy to go around the ear in the folds inside if you must don’t ever worry about earwax or build out the wax will come out on its own or if you do see that something that you don’t like that’s really fast left for a doctor you would never ever want to put anything in the baby’s ear eyes or nose that you think would need cleaning that’s really best handled by your doctor
