I am expecting my 3rd child - currently at 19 weeks. However, 2.5 years ago i was diagnosed with otosclerosis. My hearing has gone downhill very fast and i now rely on 2 hearing aids. I'm really concerned about hearing baby at night and when no-one else is around. I think i'll hear the really loud wailing, but it is things like coughing or quieter distress sounds that i'm worried i will miss. The equipment produced for people in my situation is not affordable e.g. a vibrating pad for under the pillow linked to the baby monitor.
I don't know any other parents with hearing loss, and i'm not sure where to turn for advice or just general reassurance. I would really like to hear from anyone in this situation.
