It is not advisable to use ear buds or cotton swabs to clean a child's ear. Using these can lead to injuries of inner ear or eardrum. In more severe cases, using ear buds can cause long term problems like hearing loss and body balance problem.
If you feel there is excess build up of earwax in your child's ear, you can use a soft cotton cloth to wipe the wax that is visible to you. Do not try to probe anything inside your child's ear as that might create more problems.
