As the title says, did you bub have big tonsils that were impacting on their health but they grew into them and the health issues resolved?
DD had big tonsils, recurrent tonsillitis plus recurrent ear infections (not always at the same time). The ENT agreed that her big tonsils were preventing her ears from draining properly. Following her tonsillectomy at 4, she's barely caught a cold.
DS is 14 months and has been sick for 4 weeks already. Last week he was diagnosed with an ear infection, 2 days later, once on antibiotics, the doctor said it looked 100% clear again and to just finish the course. So when, in the last 2 days he's been taking a turn for the worse, so got in to see a different doctor and both ears are infected now. When examining him she exclaimed "Big tonsils!".
So I'm worried we're heading for years of illness while waiting to see if he grows into his tonsils. If there's not much chance he is going to grow into them, I'd rather look into a tonsillectomy sooner rather than later.
