Interestingly, all of the families we met this weekend chose Cochlear Corp. for their implant brand. And they all use the babyworn cord option in a variety of processor colors. And all but 2 of the kids were boys between 15 & 19 months. There were lots of little boys running (I mean crawling) around!
Anyway... Lucas has had a pretty nasty diaper rash this week, so I was giving his hiney some nudey time to give the rash some air. Because I had nowhere to attach his babyworn cord, I decided to try out the BTE and see how it worked. I kind of like it! And his ears seem to be sturdy enough. The only thing I don't like, is that when he does pull it off, or it falls off, it's not attached to him anywhere. But, I can get a critter clip too. I also decided it was time to change the mic cover, so we went a little *crazy* (ha!) and chose green, instead of silver.
He also enjoyed being able to wear it with his swimming trunks while we were playing outside at Oma's house. He even went through the sprinkler with it on!
But, we took it off to splash in the pool with his cousin. We were taking no chances!
Part of the secret is wig tape. Landry has been doing this since the beginning! We'll see how long it lasts though. We may be back to the babyworn soon. It works well for us too. I just wanted to try something different!
