    Questions about Oticon Phonak RIC and BTE...

    Hello! My Baby was diagnosed deaf and got HAs two months ago. We had a super young and hip audiologist who recommended the Phonak aids, although she said Oticon was good too.

She thought $15 was too much to spend for a professional cut so she cut my daughters hair herself. (This is my older hearing daughter, not my new baby.) OH MY GOSH it turned out...

    That’s awesome! I was very fortunate that my daughters hearing aids were 100% covered too. HUGE relief. Unfortunately the batteries still come out of pocket.

    Thank you Tristen! Plain pink sounds cute too. I think I’m gonna get her one solid color with glitter next time. Maybe purple with glitter? What color earmolds do you wanna get your daughter next time?

    Translating asl gestures to text

    I'm in awe of how complex and unique of a language system ASL is, primarily because it is a signed, not spoken, language. So, let's say I see someone sign a particular sign, and I want to know what it means. Uhhh...big problem! Unlike written languages, I can't simply "type" the gesture as text...

    Baby’s glitter earmolds

    Thank you! the Bright colors make me smile every time i put them in her ears. She is adjusting well and is waaay more alert with them in. I just have to take them out so she will nap though. The sound keeps her awake!

    Baby’s glitter earmolds

    My baby girl got her first hearing aids yesterday!! We ordered pink/purple/turquoise swirl earmolds with irridescent glitter. They turned out so cool and remind me of the Aurora Borealis! Here are pics of my baby girl and her new hearing technology. What do you think? Glittery by Waitbird posted...
