I have one child who loves to fall asleep to music (dd, nearly 3) and one who needs silence to fall asleep (ds, 6). They share a bedroom.<br><br>
To avoid bedtime battles, we sometimes let dd use a set of headphones with her tape player so they can both fall asleep. Right now the only kind we've got in the house are the earbud kind. They aren't really the right shape for her ears and don't stay in well. In addition, I'm worried about her hearing, and would like to get an over the ear kind and/or one that attenuates the sound so that it doesn't get too loud and damage her hearing.<br><br>
Does anyone know of a good sturdy headphone that we could use for dd? They'd need to be comfortable while lying down on her back (or side- but that's probably not going to happen!) One that limits the sound to a reasonable decibel level would be ideal, but if not, then open earphones that I can also hear can help me monitor the sound as she falls asleep.<br><br>
TIA

How about these?<br><a href="http://www.gearlive.com/index.php/news/article/kidz-gear-headphones-09201144/" target="_blank">http://www.gearlive.com/index.php/ne...ones-09201144/</a><br><br>
I haven't tried them, but they sound like they might be the right kind of thing.

My daughter has a fischer price FP3 player. <a href="http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st=2620&e=fp3landing" target="_blank">http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?...0&e=fp3landing</a><br><br>
I took off all the songs and stories that it came with and we made her her own playlist of her favorite bands and artists. The volume only goes to a certain level that is safe for little ears. The headphones would be uncomfortable for sidesleeping but ok for back sleeping. We like it a lot.
