Hi,

My son started wearing aids at 3 (he's now 9). For the most part, his molds have lasted 6 months. If there's feedback, be sure the aid is in properly. There shouldn't be any gaps on the outer part of mold and it should fit flush and tightly. If the molds are inserted properly and the fit is correct, there shouldn't be feedback.

it may be that your son is outgrowing them faster than they can make them. that happens early then as the growing slows down, your ear mold need will too. hopefully :)

you might want to find a place that makes the ear molds in the office so you could have them later that day or the next.

3 weeks delivery is a lot of growth for a 2 year old!!!

hope

Hi!


Thanks for the reply the petroleum jelly is helping the molds to fit better. They are made with the extra hook

Hello My dd is 17 months and got her aids at 4 months we have gone to get new molds made every six weeks they take on average two weeks to come in. So we see the audoligest. We are now able to streatch it to 8 weeks!!! so We go get them made wait two weeks go pick them up and then go back four to six weeks from then to start the cycle again. up until now the mold waernty covered it fully the company has changed there policy and it will now cost me 10$ each time we get new molds made. I guess thats better than 120$ everytime. but still I like the free mold under the six month warrenty. hope this helps
