  • Ear phones? If you think its going to be loud enough to use them then don't take him. Hearing can be damaged very easily. Ear infections are caused by fluid which does not drain, it then becomes infected with bacteria. So while the noise won't cause it, exposure to so many adults during the cold and flu season might. He's just too little right now. Get a sitter or stay home.

  • Can you just get a babysitter instead?
    No, loud music cannot cause an ear infection, but it CAN cause hearing loss!

  • I don't think the music will cause any damage - just don't sit close! He'll probably enjoy it.

  • Don't put him close to the music. If you can, take the pack and play or something so that you can keep him somewhat contained in an area of the room you are in but far enough away from the music. Best option would be to get a babysitter because loud music can cause hearing loss, but I don't know that ONE night would do too much damage.
