For Hearing, Not Teething!
Aiden has really been taking out his hearing aids EVERY CHANCE HE GETS lately. I put them in, he takes them out. The other day I counted 20 times of in and out, all within thirty minutes! I was going to try and count all day, but lost hope. I thought with him wearing them since he was 10 weeks, we wouldn't have a problem with this. Wrong. The other day, I heard a bunch of buzzing (which is so normal in our lives), knowing he had them out. Sure enough. I think he's mistaking them for his teethers. He's like Speedy Gonzales ... one and then the other ... I can't get there to stop him fast enough! And one inevitably makes it into his mouth and then he looks at me like, "Don't you dare touch it." (I found the other one from this pic on the floor!)So our solution ... pilot caps! After a few days of constantly in & out, I finally ordered some and they were here in less than a week. So for now, we're saved! Only problem, I measured his head a bit too small and he STILL can get them out ... just not as fast as mom can get over there to fix it though!(Oh, and that teether thingy in the picture is GREAT too! I think you get them at Target. We stick ice cubes in there for his teething. When they get older you can stick fruit in there. The covering is mesh so just juices come out. Aiden goes crazy with it!)
