infant ear plugs?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi all-- I am taking my 3 month old to a concert on Sunday and wish to protect his ears from the noise. Can I just use regular foam earplugs? Are their child sized plugs? I don't want to make an investment in muffs. I plan on wearing him in the Moby so muffs would be too big anyways.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there,
I know this sounds crazy but my MIL told me to use silly putty! She said she used it for my husband when he was a baby to keep water out of his ears! She recommended the brightly colored kind, that it molds specifically to baby's ear and it worked for him!

Mom to Logan ( 8 mo.) and wife to Brent

your can buy wax ear plugs for swimming that would mold just as easily as silly putty, but meant for the ears. They make specific ones just for kids that come in bright colors too. They are cheap and can be found in regular stores, I get mine at our grocery store.

Yahooo for bringing babies to shows!

My best friend has am awesome pair of baby earphones/earmuffs .. they look like hot pink dj phones.. and block out the vast majority of the noise. I guess they're more for babies that wont just rip them off... they're pretty solid once they're on though. Can't find them through google though, and know that she had to order them. I'll repost if I find out where she got them from.
Through googling this, I found a couple of message boards of parents taking kids to shows & what their solutions were... I'm sure that you'll be able to figure out what works best for you both!

Thanks everyone-- I easily found the wax ones at Target and will try those out. I'm going to see A.R. Rahman-- the guy who does a lot of Bollywood soundtracks, and did Slumdog Millionaire.

thanks for the earplugs link! I've been wondering about earmuffs. I miss going to shows and may try taking my lo after I get her a pair.

I'm glad to hear the wax earplugs are ok for babies; I was about to ask the same question, as we want to go to a show soon too.

I was considering getting the earmuff looking ones for the 4th, but it sounds like the swimmer's wax ear plugs from the drugstore will work just as well!
