Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
5 years old baby
ear wax is nothing but d dirt which is inside d ears...all of us have it...v clean it with ear buds right that dirt is only called as ear wax....
ear wax protets the ear drums. normally it doesn't causes any harm. can be cleaned with earbuds if in excess.
be very careful about cleaning with ear buds btw. very gentle and don't let kids do it themselves
Thanks All! Will be careful while cleaning!

Sweta,my doc told me ,ear bud is used only to clean the grooves of the ears front n back,this should never be inserted into the ears as it pushes the dirt further inside especially in kids as they have smaller ear holes and the parts inside the ear is closer,s he said having wax is good as long as it's not irritating the child and not in excess.
Thanks Shalini..its not irritating lo but I was just concerned!

ear wax is a protective covering in all human beings , small or adults.. dosent need any cleaning or removal. it's a natural secretion of ear
