I was coming on here to post about the same thing.<br>
Can you just take the adult cushion/spongue type ear plugs, steralize and cut smaller?<br>
Or do they make ear plugsfor babies?

I'm confused--are you in a situation where you have to take an infant to a rock concert or something? I don't think "protection" is necessary for everyday life.

we are going to a Cinco De Mayo open air concert, not a problem we won't be near the stage etc but I'm staying to shoot the fireworks which does worry me.<br>
and truthfully I wouldn't take her to a movie without some type of ear protection either, and that's supposed to be normal everyday life.

I was thinking about getting these for summer concerts. You could also ask the "head" mommas in find your tribe. I bet they have the best recommendations.

I'm not the OP, but I need plugs for DD because wher we live people drive back and forth with mopeds, pocket bikes, they mow the lawn all the time, kids swear and yell down the street, neighbors are always using power tools etc. Oh and the cars, the peel out and have sounds pounding and loud mufflers, she always jumps and cries.

we have headphones similar to the ones posted above, she kept them on great last summer (we bought them for 4th of july fireworks). We just tried to use them again a month ago and she pulled them off, but I figure they might come in more handy when she is a toddler and is scared of loud noises.

I can't imagine having a baby wear them all the time like in Islandmama's situation, that just sounds silly.

I got a pair of baby earphones from the earplugstore.com. They look like the ones that musicians use to record. They are called Juinior's and they fit my 2 month old. My DH is a musician and DD went to her first show last weekend! She looked so cute!

I just purchased the ear muffs and am wondering for those of you who have them do your babies still fall asleep in the sling? It seems like it would be uncomfortable.<br>

It might sound silly, but after 6-8 times putting her down to nap and seeing her jump startled and start crying because someone just peeled out in front of the house, or the power tool in the backyard woke her up, whatever it is, the noise is non-stop, I just want to find a way to get her to sleep peacefully. I can't just say oh well, I don't care. It breaks my heart how exhausted she is and how she jumps when she is sleeping.<br>
I wasn't thinking muffs, I was thinking plugs, but I guess because of the danger of them putting it their mouths its not an option.<br>
I would think muffs would be unconfortable to nap in, Until I move I am going to keep trying to find a solution.

I recommend Peltor Kid earmuffs. They work great.<br>
August's_Mama- my daughter has fallen asleep in the sling with them on.
