Hi there

It sounds like your baby has an ear infection. She needs to be seen by vet to begin the appropriate treatment. The sooner the better, the worse it gets we are at risk for her to get an ear hematoma which would require further treatment. I would not put ANYTHING in the ear canal until the vet sees her as the ear drum may be ruptured! Good Luck
