Here are the instructions that she gives:

If you have a child that wakes up screaming from the pain of an ear infection, this is for you. It takes 30 minutes for over the counter pain medicines to work, but this will help while you are waiting.

  1. Run some water and get it as hot as your hands can stand it. Place a cloth in the water and then ring out the excess.
  2. Take the wet cloth and place it into a mug.
  3. Take the mug and place it into the microwave for 20 seconds or until the cloth is very hot and the mug is warm.
  4. Take the open end of the mug and place it against your child's head. Keep the open end around the ear. Be careful that the cloth inside the mug doesn't touch the ear as it's very hot.

This creates pressure. The pressure will relieve the pressure that is in the ear. Now your child will be back to sleep in no time without crying. Soon the pain medicine will start working and they'll get a restful night's sleep.

This may not work for every single person that tries it, but I would be willing to try almost anything when my little one is in pain! Give your mom a copy of this secret and keep a copy handy next time you should need it.  Have you tried this before? Did it work? Let us know in the comments!
