I never thought I'd be buying "accessories" for my son. Now that we're at the point of actually getting hearing aids, strange questions begin to enter my mind. Like the rain. Water is not good for hearing aids. We live in an area that is usually raining or snowing, and when it isn't doing one of those it is HUMID! Panic set in! Thank goodness for the listserv at listen-up.org. The wonderful parents there assured me that a hat and/or a hoodie is usually enough to keep light rain from causing harm to those expensive little hearing aids!
I'm thinking of buying some baby ear gear They come in all sorts of neat colors and help keep everything dry, clean, and together. Just in case Nolan decides to eat his aids, for instance.
Then there are the acclaimed pilot caps from Hanna Anderson. I first saw these on Mari's blog .
And what if those blessed aids get wet? Well, there is the Dry And Store which will dry them out and usually restore function. From what I've heard, they also work to restore function to remote controls and other electronics inadvertantly doused with water!
I'll have to see what comes with our hearing aids, but I am definitely buying some pilot caps at the very least. I have a feeling Hanna Anderson had no idea that hordes of hearing-aid wearing kids would be buying her hats!
And thanks to Mari's mom for telling me how to link items in a post! LOL.
