So my baby didn't pass her hearing screening

For her right ear, that is. The audiologist said she failed the test twice already and she'll have to take another one in a month from now.

Not that it's a "problem" to us or anything like that, but we were wondering if anyone here had their baby fail her/his hearing screening then passed later on?

By the way, my partner and I were not born like this, and there is no one in our family who is hearing impaired.

Discuss!

Please do not use that "hearing impaired". We don't like that. Hello, your baby is deaf lol. Better learn ASL now. If doctor suggest you to get your child a CI. Don't get it. Let your child grow and understand how CI works then ask her to see if she want or not. it her choice. Also be sure your child learn ASL, not oral.

My two year old granddaughter passed her newborn screening and then didn't meet any milestones and learn speech.
Just in the past few months she was reassessed .
So I am not convinced of the reliability of those tests.

Oh, sure filf

My son was born and did not pass the hearing screening 3 times for 4 days later and then he passed. They believe that caused by the fluid.

my hub and I were born profoundly deaf with unknown causes. We both dont have any deaf relatives. Just that our babies are hearing.

I know one of my close friends who have the same situation as us except they have deaf kids unexpectedly. cool.

If I were you, I could just ask him what he will do with her kid, instead of tell him what to do and what not to do. But don't worry, I'm sure he's great father.

It is not unusual at all for a child to fail the newborn screening, and then to show no problems later on. I would recommend not putting too much faith in the newborn screening. Basically it is just used to red flag infants that need to be checked later on.

Btw, congrats, Daddy!

You are absolutely correct. They are not as reliable as some would have you believe. They miss the mark in both directions way too much.

Deaf Gene! and now the deaf generation begins with your baby

whatever happens - we've got your back! I agree with Frisky's post. It happens especially for newborns with fluid in their ears. I mean what do you expect since she was inside that big bag of water for 9 months?

Perhaps the doctor are looking too much into this as a precaution since both of you guys are deaf or HOH.

I would wait and see as she gets older. Babies tubes in their ears tend to not develope well enough to drain til they are older and she may still have fluids in her ears.

Which is one of the reason why babies need to drink or nurse upright. So the fluids do not build up in their ears.

I agree. Babies tend to be alert at different levels.

So, if they're testing their hearing through alerts... how do they know it's the sound that's triggering the response? Could it be vibrations? Could it be movement? Could it be just random luck?

First of all, Congrats on your birth of new baby girl! Name? When born? Is there other thread that I may missed?

My friend's daughter did not pass her hearing test, and I believe she still not passed at 3 months hearing test (gotta ask). MOST important is baby's healthy!! I do not care if hearing or deaf.

Congratulations and I wouldn't worry about your daughter, enjoy her for who she is.

Like some people here said, don't put too much faith in the hearing tests at the moment. The likelihood of a baby being born with hearing loss increases with both of the parents being deaf though. I have known some deaf people who were not born deaf yet their babies were born deaf. So it's possible that their genes may have mutated somewhere along the way.

However, there is still time to determine your baby's hearing status sometimes in the short future. Meanwhile, congratulations on the birth of your baby!

Alex,

Greetings to your little girl! But please, she deserves a proper welcome with pictures, stats, etc., in her own Introductions thread. The picture is cute but too tiny.

Congratulations to the proud new mamma and papa!

I hope mamma is also doing well.

She is so cute in the picture that I can almost smell the baby powder. I send blessings and hope that she is always as smart and happy as she can possibly be. I also hope that is always surrounded by loving and supported people, that she never know hunger or strife. How could it ever be otherwise in her family? Especially with Uncle Jiro to help watch out for her, eh? What a blessing she is!
