My boy has been saying this a lot for most noises like the t.v. is too loud, even if I am using the spray hose in my kitchen sink to wash it out he says "too loud" he had his hearing checked as a baby actually a little older then a baby abut a year ago & he was fine...does your little one do this? sensitive?

  • My son has always been that way - It started off where everything was too loud, now at 3-1/2 its getting better and he adjusts to many things but he's just sensitive in many ways so it wasn't surprising. Like he could totally handle Fireworks but if the Radio was too loud it was a problem too so I never knew what would bother him

  • My son freaked out over the belender and food processor and vacuum.. I believe he has slight APD(auditory processing disorder) as he has issues in class concentrationg when others are whispering and turning pages and making any noises.

  • my son is 2.5 and does that too...its so strange i know he has good hearing but was also wondering if his ears are to sensitive... we were walking down the street this morning and there was a lawnmower or something near by and he covered his ears and said "loud loud" im not sure why though...mostly he does it to high pitched things

  • My 3 1/2 year old twins are always complaining that noises are " too scary", "too loud", or "hassling their ears". My daughter will claim her brother is screaming when he's really just talking a tiny bit louder than a normal indoor speaking voice. We are somewhat of a quiet family as a whole though, and they aren't accustomed to being in a noisy environment.  I try to warn them before I turn on anything that might be too noisy for them.

  • Ok, I feel a little better, but still wondering, he just started doing it in the last couple weeks.
