There's no danger to your health or the hearing aid if you do decide to sleep with the hearing aids in or on your hear.

But most doctors to advise against wearing your hearing aids to bed and recommends you remove the hearing aids before sleeping.

The reason is removing the hearing aids before sleeping allows your ears and ear canals to air out and also it's not very comfortable to sleep with hearing aids on or in your ears.

Plus there's always the chance the hearing aids may come out of your ear or off of your ears and then get lost in the blankets, sheets or on the floor etc.

So I would advise not sleeping with the hearing aids but you certainly can if you want too.

You can sleep wearing hearing aids but you really shouldn't because removing the hearing aids allows your ears and ear canals to breath.

Also the hearing aids can be uncomfortable to you when sleeping so I would not advise sleeping with the hearing aids although technically you can sleep with hearing aids but most doctors do not recommend it.

When I lost my hearing and started wearing a hearing aid, I also had many questions. I understood that I was clueless about many things I hadn't even thought about before. Having addressed a hearing aids staten island ny clinic, I found out everything I needed to know. Of course, I also worried about sleeping with my device on. From an audiologist, I found out that hearing aids aren't designed to be worn at night. They won't help you hear better when you are sleeping (e.g. you won't hear your alarm clock better).  Thus, there is no sense in wearing a hearing aid at night.
