Baby Xander from Gwinnett County, Georgia, US, was born nine weeks early and had to stay in the NICU for 59 days.
“They told me he passed his hearing screen while he was in NICU,” Xander’s mom said. But when she noticed he didn’t get startled like other babies, the new mom began wondering whether her little bundle of joy could be deaf.
She then pleaded with doctors to test his hearing again. “It took me 3 months of advocating for my son for them to test his hearing. They thought I was just being an over-protective mother. I was proven right. Never underestimate a mother!”
