I’ll never forget the time when I first saw a child with bold, colorful hearing aids.
I was at my son’s soccer game when a super-fast, skilled soccer player zoomed past us – with bright blue ear molds in his ears. He was one of the first children with hearing aids that we saw outside of an intentional setting.
We marveled at him, not only for his above-average soccer skills, but also how tough he looked in those stunning blue ear molds. When my son first got his hearing aids, I hadn’t seen colorful ear molds in person so, we went with what seemed like a good choice – clear. But as my son and I watched this confident soccer player, we decided that we too would get bright blue ear molds.
Now, as a mother that has gone through the process of getting my son hearing aid ear molds many times, I have a few tips I’ve learned along the way.
