    Never use a q-tip, it's too dangerous. Baby could jerk her head and get seriously hurt. I also use my finger, but I put a damp washcloth over my pinkie.

    I use some sweet oil to soften the wax up and some Johnson & Johnson Safty Baby Tips. Works all the time.

    Well, you're really not supposed to use Q-tips but you can if you have to. A baby wipe on the end of your pinky would do just fine too.

    There is a q-tip designed especially for babies, they are called "safety q-tip". It has a bumper that prevents it to go far inside her ear. So it is very safe and efficient to use. See their shape:

    lightly wet a q-tip and gently swab the baby's ear. there is really not much else you can do, just be cautious cleaning the ears of course, don't go to far in, obviously. clean them as you would clean your own, only maybe a little gentler.
