I had my LO on Thursday almost 3 weeks early and he failed his hearing test. The nurse said that was somewhat normal and not to worry. But because he came early it does have me worried. We're taking him back on Friday to get retested. Has anyone else gone through this and it all turned out fine?

Yep, my second baby failed a day or so after she was born, the lady said it was because she had stuff (she did say the word,lol) in that ear, went back 3 weeks later and she passed. :)

My son was two and a half weeks early and on a medicine that can cause deafness. He passed his first, failed the second and then failed the third just in the left ear. It ended up being from fluid and its correcting its self now that hes 6 months.
