We know the struggles of keeping hearing devices on babies and toddlers. The baby pilot cap (or hearing aid hat) is the perfect solution to prevent your child from attempting to remove their hearing aids.
The white lotus is the perfect solution for the warmer weather. With it's cool white colour, its mesh side panels allow air flow and breathability so they don't over heat. The white lotus is a type of water lily that has blossoms that rise above the surface of the water. Nothing can hold the white lotus down. It is resilient, strong and brave.
The hearing aid pilot cap keeps your baby's hearing aid in place - allowing for optimum hearing, while reducing the risk of a lost hearing aid or any potential choking hazards.
As all children are different, we recommend choosing the size of the pilot cap based on the measurements of your child's head circumference rather than their age. As children do grow quickly, if you are purchasing the smaller size, we also suggest purchasing the next size up so you can move them into the next size when they are ready.
It is also important to note that your children's ears and hearing aids need to be kept clean at all times. We also know that child's play is messy! We suggest purchasing at least two pilot caps so that you have a clean one on hand at all times.
Pilot Cap Sizing:

Each hearing aid pilot cap is made of a breathable cotton fabric with mesh side panels. Caps are all adjustable, with three snap closures that fasten under the chin.
Disclaimer: Please note that our size guide is an approximate guide only. All head sizes, shapes and dimensions differ for each individual. The hat should be a snug fit to keep hearing aids in place. However, if the hat appears to be too tight and causes lines or indents onto the head, please discontinue use and move to the next size up.
