The parents of a deaf baby have documented the heartwarming moment every morning when they turn on their child's hearing aid.

The father, Paul Addison, says he and his wife first learned about their four-month-old daughter Georgina's hearing difficulties when she failed her newborn hearing test.

The playful infant wriggles around with joy and tries to respond to the voice in a series of happy squeals, before her mother replies: 'That's a very loud hello'.

The dad revealed it was particularly poignant for him as he is also partially deaf.
