Just give her extra hay and plenty of water. Keep an eye on her poos. She drank extra sugar. If it upsets her tummy and causes pain, she will refuse food. If she refuses food, give her some simethicone. Otherwise, if she's still eating, she should be just fine.

Was it regular sugar lemonade or was it the kind with artificial sweeteners, and if so what is the artificial sweetener in it?

Rabbits don’t know what’s safe and not, otherwise my bunny wouldn’t digest rubber and eating chargers. The rabbits that know what to eat are the wild bunnies (cottontails and hares). Domesticated pets often won’t know what’s safe and what to eat. Even wild animals will eat wrong things.

As long it’s small amount it often won’t be dangerous but it come down to what they have digested 😅

It would be best if you could make your own thread but no problem. Scratching his ear a few times a day is totally normal. Don’t try to clean his ears with a cotton bud though, as that could be dangerous, such as if he tried to run away or your hand slipped, it could pop his ear drum. I think that’s the reason? 😅
I’ve personally never cleaned my rabbits ears but I check daily for wax build up. Rabbits with straight ears are less prone to getting wax but lop-eared rabbits get it often. @Hermelin might be able to help on ear cleaning. When in doubt, call your vet.

My rabbit has hides in his pen, tunnels, a dig box, wood sticks, and plastic keys and stacking cups

Uhh almost had a heart attack my twin brother fed my rabbit a huge pile of alphalfa pellets I went to check on my bunny and saw he was eating the alphalf a pellets (I don't get alphalpa pellets but the store delivery lady got it instead of Timothy ) and before that I had eaten Oreo cookies and haven't washed my hands when I went and pushed them out of the cage and possibly touched hay and wat not so my bunny could get chocolate crumbs and eat them 😫😫😫😫😫 any advise (sorry if I seem over dramatic I just don't want anything bad to happen to my rabbit)

Will he be ok with popped ear drums sorry if this sounds silly (keep in mind I'm 13 my birthdays August 5th)
In general, unless there is an infection or a great deal of wax, you shouldn't need to clean you rabbit's ears, they tend to do an alright job of it themselves. DEFINATELY do NOT use Qtips in the ear canal... A popped eardrum is very painful, will require veterinary intervention and it is very likely your bunny would lose all hearing in that ear. A Qtip also pushes wax deeper into the ear and is not very effective for this.

If you need to clean your rabbits ears (which you likely don't) wrap a piece of gauze around your finger soaked in ear cleaning solution and and gently clean what you can reach.

The possibility of cookie crumbs on your hands is probably not an emergency... chances are there aren't enough for him to get sick. The alfalfa isn't ideal either, but he should be fine. Throw away the alfalfa pellets, offer a little bit of the timothy pellets as well and offer unlimited hay... everything should be just fine. Additionally, inform your brother about bunny care and what is and isn't good for them
