If any procedure to removed the earwax is attempted first it needs to be moisten repeatedly for a week one practical ear wax thinner you can use is "baby oil" 3 drops on each ear for 10 mins for 5 days, then either you can take her to a local health center for a simple ear wash or you can do it at home with a syringe(without the needle) and wash each ear gently with warm water. Do this only if your child can cooperate with the procedure if she's still to young to remain still you could wait a couple of months id she hears well.
