Would you take a 6 month old to a pro hockey game?

First off all opinions welcome! My DD is almost 6 months she doesn't mind loud noises and her favorite thing to watch on TV is sports with daddy. Would you think I was a bad mom for bringing her to a pro hockey tonight? I have seen babies there before and she is also BF and pretty mellow. IDK I'm on the fence!!!

  • go for it. even if she gets fussy, no one is going to notice. just bring her blanket and a few toys in the event she doesnt want to watch the game anymore. i would totally bring my child! just be sure to wipe down things before she touches them, like the seats and stuff, and if she drops her toys.

  • I would if I really wanted to go. Just be prepared to leave if she gets really fussy! But if she is usually mellow, I say go for it!

  • The only reasons I wouldn't this time around : massive public exposure and it's flu season. The only other reason is the squirming after about an hour. Otherwise, let her rip!

  • Wouldnt think you were a bad parent for taking a baby but I, personally, wouldnt do it.

  • I wouldn't but what you do with your child is your business. The only thing I would suggest is being careful as this is flu season. Do what a PP suggested by wiping down things you think she might touch.

  • We took our 6 week old to a professional baseball game. We put her in a sling and she slept through most of the game. I would imagine a 6 month old will have a lot more energy but I say go for it. Just be prepared to leave or walk around if she gets too fussy.
