  • I dont think I would take the 8 month old. I would ask the Dr.

    But they do make ear plugs designed to reduce noise.

  • for a three year old she may try the earplugs on her, but with the 8 month I don't know, is there anyway you could have someone watch him instead.

  • Babies ears are still so sensitive. Also, the noise might make him very edgy. If you do take him tho, and you find him not sleeping well, his brain might be re-living the commotion. I would be for taking him to a sitter. :) Little guys don't really have that much fun at these kinds of events. Have a great time with your family! :)

     they are not 100% safe. a 6 year old boy was killed in Seattle by flying debris just this Jan. It was so loud in the stadium, the police couldnt even hear eachother or communicate.. its just really not a healthy place for an 8 month old, let alone a 3 year old. Earplugs are a good idea but.. come on.. is this really the place to bring kids?
