  • I took my oldest at 8weeks. It was Reba, I am not a country fan, but you don't pass up a free ticket to see Reba!

    Anyway, I kept him in a sling and put his ear to my chest and covered the other ear with my hand. I stayed away from the speakers and he was just fine. Make sure if it is hot out to keep him well hydrated and cool.

  • I am gong to say no, because it will be too loud for one that little.

  • Outdoor shouldn't be so bad. If it's 'angry mob" type music (moshpits and the like) I wouldn't trust the crowd in the slightest, but mellow music should be OK, I think. Ear protection would be a good idea.

  • I wouldn't- Too Many people will be there & there are always a few Fruit- Loops at any concert!

  • Hmmmm You know i think it would depend on what concert it was really and then again i wouldnt expose my child to that many people so early but thats just me. I wouldnt go to a rock concert but i might go to a local smaller music festival.
