    Default Refered hearing test for right ear

    Ok so I am freaking out a bit. My dd had her newborn hearing test today and it was referred for her right ear. Left ear is fine. We bathed her last night and I remember my husband saying to lift her head cos I was getting the water in her ear and I recall the way we were facing so it was definitely her right ear that was going in the water. The nurses are going to retest tomorrow and they said it could have been from the water. But I am freaking out. We have been through so much already I just don't know if I can handle it if she has hearing imparement

    Any advice or anyone been in this situation?

    Huge hugs, Its hard not to worry When I had Ds's hearing test in the hospital the guy explained that some babies do sometimes fail in one or both ears due to the possibility of mucous still in the ears from being in the womb and being born. Im guessing the same would go for water in the ears too. Try not to stress just yet, terribly hard not too I know

    Fx she passes with flying colours

    My DD failed her first & second hearing test for her right ear. It was kindve squished to together at birth. 2 weeks later at a ent specialised they put her through another hearing test slightly different to the first ones and she did fine. No advice but don't panic just yet.

    My dd2 Failed both ears in hospital. We were referred for a follow up 2 weeks later- it was over the Xmas period - so lots of public holidays. Second time round she passed both ears- apparently mucous can still be in their ears after birth and can need a little bit of time to clear out.

    My DD failed her newborn hearing test in both ears and (before I had the follow up test) they told me not to stress as they suspected it was because of all the gunk/mucous etc she would have gotten through the birth canal and in the womb as this is apparently very common. She passed on the subsequent testing (and they were very thorough) but just told me not to be surprised if she is prone to having glue ear issues as she grew. She is 14 months old now and has so far, (touch wood) never had an ear infection or ear issues thankfully.

    I hope that gives you a little reassurance OP and your little one with pass and all will be ok as it has been for my DD and previous posters with similar issues.

    Thank your ladies. Your replies mean so much to me. My dd1 is prone to ear infections and had grommets put in so I am hoping that's all it is. Perhaps something that runs in the family...
