    It means your baby is hard of hearing. You need to get an appointment with an audiologist right away, so you will know the best way to work with your baby to help him get the language skills he will need.

    Sometimes it don’t really mean anything. My son did the same thing when he was born, but retested later and it was normal. Now my son is 3 and he failed his hearing test at school, so I took him to a specialist and he passed. She told me sometimes the child or baby can be sleepy or just tired and don’t respond well, and she also said if it’s any noise in the room the machine may pick up on the noise and the child not hear the intended sound. My advice would be to do the follow up and be at ease, I am sure it is really nothing. Blessing to you and your baby.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. My son didn’t pass his test in the hospital and the only reason I didn’t have to bring him back was because my midwife came to do the test herself a second time before we left. I watched her do it. That machine is REALLY sensitive. Any mild noise in the room and it’s an instant fail for the baby. We were completely silent in the room, deliberately not making any noise at all, and he still failed when the midwife did it. So she tried again and he passed. Come to find out someone was down the corridor talking and even though it was far away with the door closed, the test still picked up that sound.

    So I really don’t think it’s anything to be worried about. Your son’s test probably picked up some weird, nearly silent sound that the person administering the test didn’t hear themselves. Try not to worry. 🙂
