just clean the exterior portions after bath with cotton... no need to use buds inside either nose or ear... the dirt gets pushed out from both by itself, from nose while sneezing... the membranes are very sensitive and can get damaged if we use bud inside...

Hello Shikha..
Ear cleaning-just clean the outer ear with a wet clean cotton cloth instead of inserting inside canal. Newborn wax also comes out of the ear on its own,so no need to worry.  So cleaning the outer ear will take care of the wax discharged from the ear.
Nose cleaning-When you clean mucus from a baby's nose, use the corner of a wet clean cotton cloth, rather than a cotton swab. if baby is having nasal congestion- stuffed nose,then use saline nasal drops..😊
