Yes, I have heard that babies can have that same issue with sinus pressure. I hadn’t thought about that in this discussion. Ear infections are so common with infants and children. I suspect that would create some vulnerability. However, I’ve not heard of an infant or young child losing hearing this way.
Babies are screened for hearing loss shortly after birth in most hospital settings. Should a child show signs of hearing loss after a flight experience it would likely be possible to compare those screening results with another screening or testing.
Interesting thoughts. Thank you.
