Everybody has their own preferences and ways to keep their baby safe, but who doesn’t at least want all the information possible to make sure baby’s body grows well as she reaches each important milestone. One thing I realized is that her ears need to be protected just as much as every other part of her body, these cute baby headphones from Pro for Sho have helped me rest assured!
I first found out about baby headphones after traveling on her fourth flight in the first three months of her life. Little Sarah-Elizabeth is a baby traveling pro!
But I noticed that she mainly cried on the plane during take off and landing.
Girl, I’m not a subscriber to the theory of spoiled babies, I wanted to know what was wrong. What need needed to be met?
When a man sitting behind me said, “Her ears are probably popping!” it clicked.
I did my google-mommy research and found out that she could not regulate that popping feeling by swallowing yet, but nursing could help with this uncomfortable phenomenon.
That flight went really well and we landed smoothly.
I got home to the family trip I HAD to have, so Ms. Sarah-Elizabeth could meet her great grandparents.
And as I was there my aunt mentioned the idea of baby headphones for the plane or anywhere there is loud noise, like a loud concert or at church.
What a great idea!
A google search landed me on these cute noise reduction baby gear add ons and I was set.
I started telling all my mommy friends about how these can help your baby keep her hearing even when at our fun but sometimes loud church.
Sarah even wore headphones when we visited her grandparents church in TX for her dedication.
Here’s a picture of here at her dedication, isn’t she so cute?!
And here’s one with the family (her grandparents on both sides)
In an article written by New York Times, the author mentioned the importance of headphones when you frequent loud events like church, concerts or sporting events; it’s not worth the risk of your child having permanent hearing damage,
Specialists say such safeguards are critical for young ears in a deafening world. Hearing loss from exposure to loud noises is cumulative and irreversible; if such exposure starts in infancy, children can live “half their lives with hearing loss,” said Brian Fligor, director of diagnostic audiologyat Children’s Hospital Boston.
“If a child attends only one loud sporting event, it isn’t a big deal. But for those kids who will be going to football games throughout their lives, as Drew Brees’s kids will, it’s a very big deal. A young, tender ear may not be able to withstand damage.”
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, more than 15 minutes of exposure to 100 decibels is unsafe. The noise in a football stadium can reach 100 to 130 decibels.Being a mom has been so much fun and scary and exciting and pioneering-like all at the same time. Never thought I could have more purpose than I did in previous seasons, but this has filled me to the brim.
With the way our hip, cool churches go these days (which I love) we listen to our music loud and can forget about our little guys, but these head phones can be used from three months to two years without a problem. And they are actually kind of cute!
Being a mom has been so much fun and scary and exciting and pioneering-like all at the same time. Never thought I could have more purpose than I did in previous seasons, but this has filled me to the brim.
Knowing that there’s one less thing to worry about has brought me the security every mom deserves! You can buy these headphones on Amazon for only $17.45
I’ll be writing more ways I’m learning to keep baby girl (and your little one) safe soon.
Have a great week loves!!!
