She may not have probs after she is older. The estaucian (? sp) tubes in infants are shaped differently than adults. They have a bend in them that allows fluid to be trapped.  That is why they are more prone to ear infections.  As they grow the tubes straighten out and the fluid is able to drain easier. Best wishes with the both of you.

When my son was young, he had way past his share of ear infections. His pediatrician suggested  not to lay him back too far when he is drinking from a bottle.
