  • My daughter was 7 months old last Fourth of July. So, no 13 months isn't too young. Although, we did just watch them from a friend's house window in Atlantic City. My daughter is now 19 months and my son is 3 weeks old, we live in Los Angeles...My husband and I are not going anywhere because we don't want to drive our babies with drunks out tonight. So, it all depends where you go and if you feel safe enough to drive somewhere with your baby. Should be fun and interesting for your daughter though. Happy 4th!

  • My daughter saw them when she was a few months old, but we were a ways away so the sound wasn't too loud. She saw them again this year at 16 months and loved them. Lots of "whoa"s.

  • My DD was 13mos the first time she really saw them and she LOVED them! I think it really just depends on the child, to how they will react. Just try it out, and make sure you tell her and point to where they are so she isnt startled and she should be fine!

  • My dd was 13 months old when she first saw them. She was terrified. She is 26 months old now; and she was more terrified than ever. Give it a try, we do. Just make sure you bring her inside ASAP if she is really scared.
