Baby Hears Moms Voice For First Time With Hearing Aid | Happily TV

A family have shared the beautiful moment their baby was able to hear his mom's voice clearly for the first time after having his first hearing aid fitted. Five-month-old Bowen Toto immediately beamed back a smile as he heard mom Cori speaking – causing Cori to shed a little tear at the adorable reaction. After birth, Bowen was diagnosed with bilateral bone conduction hearing loss, as well as a cleft palate and a heart condition. As a result of Bowen's hearing loss, doctors at MUSC Pediatric Audiology, in Charleston, South Carolina, decided he needed to be fitted for hearing aids – the first of which he was set to try on August 19. Doctors told Cori that the first moments could go one of two ways: joyous laughter or confused tears. Fortunately for the Totos it was the former, with Cori's husband capturing the sweet moment between mother and son on video. The youngster will also be learning American Sign Language, Cori said, as he can't always have his bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA) switched on.
