  • Loud noises aren't going to hurt your baby. Maybe stand center stage instead of directly in front of the speaker, but really, the loud noises aren't going to damage anything.

  • I found this on AllExperts - I can't copy it because it's too long, but here's the link.

  • And here's the Google search where I found that article and many more saying that very loud music can cause problems.

  • I don't think it will hurt. When I was pregnant with my son I had a very noisy job where I had to wear earplugs and everyone had to yell to hear each other. My son's hearing is fine. He can sleep through anything, so I think it had something to do with him being around noise all the time.
