  "description": "In this guide, we’re going to run through (with pictures) a step-by-step guide to using silicone plugs. These are a great solution for individuals with grommets or even just sensitive ears. If your child says they don’t like the feeling of wet ears, a set of ear plugs could be the first step towards restoring their love of the water. There are two main products we suggest, the Putty Buddies (which are a larger sized silicone plug, perfect for treating babies, toddlers, or young children’s ears) and the Earjobs Silicone Putty (which are smaller, but more versatile: also great for sleeping, studying, and anything for which plugs can be used). Before we begin the guide, two answers to questions we hear often.",

    "text": "Straight from the box, regardless of whether you purchased the Silicone Putty or the Putty Buddies, the ear plugs are ready to go. We’re going to warm and shape them with our fingers and then apply them into our child (or perhaps our own!) ears one by one. Make sure you wash your hands first, the ear is a very sensitive organ and you don’t want to get any dirt or sweat or anything on the plugs before inserting them (it’s a recipe for an ear infection!) Once your hands are clean, roll each individual plug one by one in your hands and into a ball, you want them to feel a little warm with a good degree of ‘give’. The benefit of the Putty Buddies is that they’re quite large, they’re designed to cover the entire outer portion of a child’s ear (known as the ‘pinna’). Once they feel like they’ve softened we’re ready to apply.",

    "text": "With your hands, press the plug out so that it’s flat and sticking over the ear. Start around the canal, allowing a little bit of the plug’s body to go inside the canal (but not too much). This will help the sticking, but inserting too deeply is not recommended for any ears — particularly not children. Then work outwards pressing down gently so that the natural stick of the plug adheres to the exterior of the ear. Make sure you press down gently as you do this, trust that the material will do the work for you in creating a seal.",

    "text": "Look around the ear, with the Putty Biddies you might see that the entire pinna of the ear is well covered. This is a good sign. The main thing you want to see is that there’s a nice seal around the points where the ear plug meets the skin of the ear, this is going to keep the water out and ensure safe water activity. Depending on how old your child is, they can help with confirming the strength of the seal, get them to trace with their fingers around the edge of the ear plugs — this helps them understand what a safe seal looks like, a good thing for them to know in case it comes detached in the water.",

    "text": "While a swimming headband won’t do anything to reduce water entering the ear, it will really keep the ear plugs from falling out or shifting in the water, making them a great solution for ensuring the best possible seal for children with grommets or sensitive ears. A simple children’s headband is the Ear Band-It or the Ear Band-It Ultra. They come in three separate sizes, are comfortable and springy, and are designed to work with the Putty Buddies.",
