Would you try to keep baby quiet...?

My dd is 8 months and just learned to crawl, stand, and go up two steps. In the mornings she watches cartoons, plays with toys, naps.. annoyed. Neighbors downstairs (we live in duplex) say keep her quiet, she's too loud. Apparently they expect to have her play quietly in her crib untl they wake up around NOON!!! Or sometimes not even until 2pm. Would you keep baby quiet, do nothing, or purposely let baby loud as can be???? Idiots without kids have no idea how to handle or what real expectations are.. I don't want dd to lookback at her childhood and being quiet and being told to sit down etc etc. No way.

Two questions: why is your 8 month old watching cartoons? and how CAN a person keep an 8 month old quiet? Screw the neighbors, babies have one volume: loud!

Tell them to get the fuck over themselves or move!

I wouldn't make her be silent, but I wouldn't let her be super loud either. I'd say try the quiet activities early in the day, but by noon they can just wake up.

Lmao. No way. I wouldn't let her purposely disrupt your neighbors, but they need to get a clue. Can you report harassment to your landlord? Maybe they can explain or move them somewhere else.

I let my kids be kids, not running and jumping type but normal inside behavior.
