+Try xylitol
+Control mouth bacteria that cause ear infections by chewing gum or eating candy sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar found in fruit
+Steer clear of smoke
+Stop smoking and avoid all sources of passive cigarette smoke exposure to reduce ear infection recurrences
+Pass up pacifiers
+Reduce ear infection risk in babies by weaning them off pacifiers
+Uncover food allergies
+Work with a knowledgeable health professional to find out if food allergies are causing infections
