how often do we have to clean the ears of our babies?

I clean her ears almost everyday after her bath, is it ok? I just clean the outside part though...

Yes, I've learned from experience to clean esp the back of the ears, before when my baby was younger I don't clean the back of her ears and I keep smelling that odor, I'm wondering why because I've bath her already but then I realize it's the back of her ears...

Yes, that is perfectly fine. I don't advise cleaning the inside of earwax with a swab, though. You're Pediatrician can better advise you with that if you start to notice a build up. Behind the ears is also good to keep clean and dry, as infentigo (unsure of spelling) can possibly develop.
