Should I or Should I not have my baby wear his hearing aids on?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

My 7 month old was diagnosed with sensorienural hearing loss, he had a ABR test done at about 2 month old and now got retested in the booth with out his aids. Both test turned out to be different, wich one should I believe? My son also screams and makes a lot of dirrefent noises, we talk to him and he looks right at us. Is this normal for a child to make all of these different sounds if he was diagnosed with hearing loss?

I would definitely use them. If the doctors think he needs them then he does. This is a crucial time of development when they start to understand what you are saying and picking up on words, and learning to say them. If he can't hear the words he won't learn to talk.

All babies are going to make sounds it is what they do. Personally I would put the hearing aids on my children at this young age because this is when they are picking up on all the different sounds.
