Baby with Cochlear Implant hears mom for the first time

From: News 10NBC - ‎Jun 17, 2010‎

Doctors and parents will tell you a baby know his mother's voice the first time he or she hears it.

And there's proof of that. An 8-month-old baby boy named Jonathan with a hearing impairment received a Cochlear Implant.

And just moments after the doctor turned it on he heard his mom's voice.

Jonathan's father, who was videotaping, called it an early Christmas present and he says it even brought him to tears.

Jonathan is now 2 years old, but just last week that video became a sensation on YouTube.
